Sinalunga rises in the hills that separate the Val di Chiana from the Ombrone Valley, a few km from the beautiful town of Siena. Findings from the 8th century BC tell us of a nucleus in the Etruscan hills of Sinalunga, In highest point of the hill there probably was a very important temple and all the surrounding hills were densely populated. On the contrary the early Roman settlements in the lower part of town date back to the 1st Century BC, and in the Republican period this settlement was an important staging post on the Via Cassia.
Monuments to visit: the Collegiata di San Martino, the Church of Madonna delle Nevi, the convent of San Bernardino, the church of Sacro Chiodo and the Praetorian Palace with its medieval bell tower which spires in the historic center, and was built between 1337 and 1346 and restored in the 15th and 17th Centuries and had always been the seat of the civil authority.
