Overview
More
A short distance from Castiglione, the imposing fortress of the Rocca di Tentennano dominates the village of Rocca d'Orcia, rising up still today to guard over the Orcia valley below, where pilgrims, merchants, and travelers once made their way along the Via Francigena. Through the courtyard, visitors can enter the halls that once housed a garrison of soldiers and climb up to the top of the keep, from which they can enjoy a sweeping view of the countryside.

If you are in the area it is worth diverting to take a look at the Val d'Orcia, Monte Amiata and surrounds from this lofty vantage point. Tentennano, like Radicofani, can be seen from afar and the €3 entrance fee is well worth it. It...More

The Fortress is kept beautifully in this tiny village away from the noise of the city. The view over the Orcia Valley is priceless. If you are looking for a quiet moment away from the city, good wine and food and fresh air, you cant...More

This was an unexpected treasure. You can climb to the castle roof with amazing panoramic views. The castle itself is beautifully kept and clearly well looked after. When we visited the castle was displaying Shakespeare-inspired artwork inside which was a lovely enhancement to the mood....More

Our hosts recommended us to go there as we were planning trip to Bagni San Filippo and it was really worth it. The fortress is small but monumental (30 minutes is enough to visit, ticket 3 EUR). You start to wonder how those guys in...More

My partner and I got married here on the 26th March 2016 and it was absolutely perfect. The views are spectacular and it was an honour and a privilege to be able to have the most important day of my life here. Grazie Castiglione d'Orcia.

This is a great view of the entire Val d'Orcia. It helped me get my bearings. You can see for miles.

If you visit Bagno Vignoni or the surrounding area, you need to stop here and climb all the way to the top. A breath-taking view of the region that is well worth the 3euro.
