Discover Monuments of Siena Italy

The cathedral is one of the most beautiful sites in Siena. Its construction began in the 12th century and completed at the end of the 14th century. It is an example of both Roman and Gothic architecture. At the foot of the altar lie two little-known sculptures by Michelangelo depicting Saint Peter and Saint Paul. Be sure to visit the baptistery below the cathedral as well. Adorned with frescoes, its 15th century baptismal fonts are plated with amazing bronze panels. Piazza del Campo is another of Siena's must-see sights. The square is paved with bricks and divided into nine parts, each symbolising one of the members of the "Government of Nine", who governed the city in the Middle Ages. At one corner of the square, you will find the Fonte Gaia, which is decorated with sculpted panels. At the other end lies Torre del Mangia, a 100m tall bell tower. If you manage the climb to the top, you will be met with a superb view of the square and the rest of the city.
