About Rocca Of Montestaffoli, San Gimignano

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.
