Monticchiello

Val d'Orcia, this fascinating oasis of nature and culture, is set among acres of olive groves, oak forests and vineyards. The river that gave its name to the valley is little more than a creek for the better part of the year. Prone to dry up in the summer heat, it becomes, come fall, an impetuous river capable of sweeping away anything it finds in its path. The river finds its source in the hills between Radicofani and Sarteano and then it flows into a wide cultivated valley. As it bends eastward, it touches the hillsides of Pienza, San Quirico, Montalcino and Castiglione. It follows the Amiata and curves around the hills of the high Maremma, before flowing into the Ombrone.

The river's water comes from the Orcia River and its tributaries, but it also receives currents from Bagno Vignoni and Bagni San Filippo. These thermal waters, which rise from the heart of the volcano, have offered well-being and health remedies for thousands of years. Castiglione d'Orcia marks the boundary between the Val d'Orcia and the forests of Monte Amiata. The City of Siena and the Salimbeni fought bitterly for control of the ancient settlement of the Aldobrandeschi in the 1300s. The hamlet's center is dedicated to painter and sculpture Lorenzo di Pietro called 'Il Vecchietto'. In its central square, visitors will find a travertine well built in 1618 which faces the Palazzo Comunale. Visitors won't want to miss a tour of the town's lovely churches including Santa Maria Maddalena and Santi Stefano and Degna. The remains of two noteworthy fortresses, Rocca Aldobrandesca and Rocca a Tentennano grace the hamlet's central area.
