Rocca Of Montestaffoli - Review

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.

Rocca Of Montestaffoli, San Gimignano Reviews

  • Access to the tower via narrow stairway, wide enough for one way traffic. Park setting in the courtyard with benches and lots of shade. Access through two gates, one from the main square and the other can be reached through the park and multiple locations, paths that surround the Rocca. Perfect 360 view with best lighting on the towers is early morning and late just before sunset.

  • Worth the walk up for some nice views of the town. Recommend going up at sunset. Free to enter and climb the walls.

  • Pretty cool. But no where near a amazing as climbing the tallest tower in the town is!

  • If you like fortresses, you must go there.

  • 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.
