What to see
A fortress looks down over the old town of Montepulciano, where on the beautiful Piazza Grande you can admire the Town Hall, built in the fourteenth century and the seventeenth-century cathedral also known as the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The recumbent statue of Bartolomeo Aragazzi by Michelozzo together with an Assumption by Taddeo di Bartolo may also be admired inside the three-nave cathedral. Palazzo Tarugi, completely covered in travertine, also overlooks the square.
We would also like to point out Piazza delle Erbe, the monumental and isolated church of San Biagio, also known as the “Temple”, and that of St. Augustine, Palazzo Cervini, designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, and the Civic Museum, which displays beautiful masterpieces of Sienese and Florentine art.

Events which shouldn’t be missed
Famous for its ancient traditions, every year Montepulciano renews its folklore with spectacular events. Beginning with the “Bravio delle botti” (The barrel contest), a competition between districts, which takes place in the streets of the city. Do not miss the spectacular “Bruscello Poliziano”: popular Tuscan traditional theatrical shows which have been repeated every year in the Cathedral churchyard since 1939.
