…and the Robin Hood of the Val d'Orcia!

The Rocca di Radicofani, a majestic fortress rich in history on the southern borders of the Val d'Orcia, has played a great strategic role over time, as well as being a place of unspoilt beauty. Built around the year 1000 to control the borders between the Grand Duchy of Tuscany and the Papal State, from the top of the crenellated tower which extends for 1000 meters in height, you can enjoy a wonderful view over the whole Val d'Orcia and Monte Amiata . Inside today is the Cassero Museum which houses archaeological finds and documents in information panels on the history of the Rocca. Walking inside the spaces of the Rocca will take you back to the Middle Ages, especially after reading the story of Ghino, known as the Tuscan Robin Hood. Ghino di Tacco was even celebrated by Dante Alighieri in the Divine Comedy and by Boccaccio in the Decameron. The gentleman brigand made the fortress his inaccessible refuge along the Via Francigena. He ambushed travellers, inquired about their real possessions, then robbed them almost completely, however leaving them with enough to survive and offering them a banquet. The Rocca di Radicofani, which still dominates the entire territory today, can be visited every day.
