SIENA

<< previous | PAGE 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

The magnificent Spedale (Hospital) of S. Maria della Scala, also faces onto the square, and is rich in frescoes and old rooms (13th-14th Centuries), which today, have become an exceptional exhibition centre.

Amongst the other churches of Siena, all rich in works of extraordinary importance, we cannot forget: S. Maria dei Servi (from the 13th Century to 1526), S. Francesco (1326-1475), S. Domenico (1226-1445), and the Oratory of S. Bernardino (15th Century).

Regarding the main museums, we must also remember the National Archaeological Museum and the wonderfully rich National Art Gallery.
The “Fonti” (fountains) that decorated the City are also famous, including the Fonte Branda, at the foot of the City, dating back to 1246 and the Fonte Gaia by Iacopo della Quercia (1419), with a copy that still adorns the Piazza del Campo.
