Monticiano

Monticiano - In the 12th century, this agricultural and holiday centre (375m, pop 1875) had a castle belonging to the bishops of Volterra (remains of the walls still exist), which then came under Sienesedomination. In the piazza at the entrance to the village stands the late-Romanesque "church of Sant'Agostino"(1291-1362), with a Baroque interior.

In the adjacent former monastery, the chapter house is decorated with a cycle of monochrom frescoes (depicting the Passion) by Sienese painters and the "Virgin Enthronedwith St Augustine and the Blessed Antony de'Patrizzi" by a Sienese painter influenced by Taddeo di Bartolo(1422).

Higher up, in the old part of the village, is located the "church of Santi Giusto e Clemente", founded in the 12th century, with a facade in square-hewn stone, a portal decorated with palmettes and a curious small bell-tower.
