CAMPAGNATICO

For greater info: http://www.comunedicampagnatico.it


The town is included among the possessions of the Aldobrandeschi family in the 10th century. The most famous quote about Campagnatico is Dante's who mentions the town in the 11th chapter of the Purgatory (".... e sallo in Campagnatico ogni fante...."). As early as the 13th century, the town was a very developed wool manufacturing and trading center, later expanded by the Tolomei family. Among the great architectural accomplishments of the 15th century is the "Chiesa della Misericordia", still visible today. Of special historical and architectural interest is the "Pieve di San Giovanni Battista", of Romanic-Gothic style, charcatherized by a bold bell tower "a vela". To the inside of the Pieve they are found frescoes of late the 1300's.

The ancient area of the town is surrounded by walls and square towers. Another place of great interest is the "Ospedale di Sant'Antonio", a Romanic building once run by the "Templar" knights who there hosted travellers and pilgrims on their way to Siena. Campagnatico actively preserves its history. Every year, various festivals, celebrations and the "Palio dei Ciuchi (a donkey race held the first Sunday in September, re-live the past, with many people dressed in ancient costumes). Today the town provides all necessary services: bank, post office, pharmacy, grocery stores, pizzeria and two typical restaurants.
