Sarteano
Between Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia stands the massive castle overlooking the town of Sarteano, birthplace of Pope Pius III, a symbol of a more recent history. But the Etruscan origins of the area have left important traces, now preserved in the Archaeological Museum like the jars, the painted ceramics and the fetid stone ossuaries. A jewel of the area is the painted Tomb of the Quadriga Infernale, one of the latest discoveries found in 2003 where you can still admire the painting cycle dating from the fourth century BC. The tomb is located in the necropolis of Pianacce and can be visited by appointment.sarteano
