Montalcino

If you go to Siena, make sure you also stop off in Montalcino, the home of the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine.

Piazza del Popolo is the main square in Montalcino and the most important building lining it is Palazzo dei Priori, which now serves as the town hall and dates back to the late 13th and early 14th centuries.

Decorating the building are the coats of arms of the many officials who governed the town over the centuries. A very tall medieval tower makes up part of the building.
