July 2018 Medieval Fair at the Fortress Monteriggioni, Italy
CaribbeanDays not only has luxury villas in Italy; but we offer private tours and adventures.
Through out the first half of July 2018 – The Medieval Fair will take place within the village of the Monteriggioni Castle. This is the most entertaining time to see the castle.
Guests are transformed back in time and are immersed within the events.
But, guests of CaribbeanDays that couple this visit with our private tour actually are able to tour the wine cellars, engage in wine tastings and samplings of the cured meats, bruschetta and salamis.
Have a look at what this fortress of Monteriggioni appears during the Mediaval Fair:
Monteriggioni represents one of the most important walled castles in the territory. It has incredibly preserved an intact structure as if time had never passed on the hill from which it elegantly dominates the surrounding landscape.
It is nestled in the province of Siena, between this beautiful city and Colle Val d’Elsa. Its perfect circular perimeter makes one suppose it to be an artficial construction while in actuality it was created by just following the curves in the natural ground.
The castle was built by the Sienese between 1213 and 1219 for defensive purposes: its strategic location atop a hill overlooking the Cassia Road allowed the castle to control the cities of the Val d’Elsa and Staggia and be on the lookout for any armies approaching Siena.
The intact fortified wall presents 14 towers along which the guards used to walk and patrol the walls and 2 gates, one called the Franca or Romea Gate which faces Rome and the other known as the Florentine Gate since it heads toward Florence.
The current structure of the village is essentially the original one.
