Sinalunga - From the 12C up until 1864 it was known as Asinalunga. Here the Sienese defeated the English mercenaries of Niccolo da Montefeltro in 1363; here also Garibaldi was arrested in 1867 by Vittorio Emanuele II, to prevent an ill-timed descent on Rome.
In the ugly Piazza Garibaldi is the collegiata (San Martino). The interior has large white stucco statues of saints. On the south side, the third chapel contains a 16C Crucifix.
To the right of the church is Santa Croce with an 18C facade. In the pretty interior is (right altar) a Marriage of the Virgin by the school of Luca Signorelli. Also in the piazza is the church of Santa Maria delle Nevi with a painting attributed to Benvenuto di Giovanni. On the right of the facade of the Collegiata Via Mazzini winds round to Palazzo Pretorio, in an unusual site, between two streets.
It is built in brick, decorated with coats of arms and a tower. In front of the palace, a road continues down to Santa Lucia (deconsecrated; used by a musical society), which contains a fresco attributed to Benvenuto di Giovanni. HERE IS OUR CHARMING HOUSE.
