As you cross the Piazza Dumo you come across a hill, on top of which you will see a castle and this is known as the Rocca of Montestaffoli. This was also a Dominican Convent at one time and also a Florentine fortress when Florence won over the region.

  • This building has a pentagonal base with beautiful turret designs on all sides. It is still protected by a drawbridge and a front gate.
  • All the turrets except one are closed as they have almost broken down.
  • Every year in the 3rd weekend of June, the Rocca Theatre opens for the lovely Medieval Festival.

  • Great views from the top! Surrounded by olive trees with a pretty courtyard in the center. Definitely worth climbing to see this. It's also free. We went around lunchtime(1:30) and it wasn't too crowded. Later on when looking from one of the towers it was very crowded so try to go earlier on.

  • Beautiful viewpoint amongst the olive trees with plenty of outdoor seating and a small wine bar attached to the wine museum

  • My favourite place in San Gimignano, with the best views. Lovely olive trees. A perfect place for a picnic.

  • The best views in the whole area, and not generally swarming with people like the main squares. Fantistic!

  • Great views of san giminano and the surrounding land
