  • The Castello was closed, so we don't see anything more than walls in the forest.
  • The castle of Belcaro is located a few kilometres from Siena, along the road that leads to the Montagnola Senese: a large Villa was built on the ruins of the ancient Castle by the banker Crescenzo Turamini in 1525, by the architect Baldassarre Peruzzi. In 1554 the villa-Castle was conquered by Cosimo de ' Medici, as recalled by a plaque affixed to the walls, and Gian Giacomo Medici's back ', the original structure of the fortress. In the 19th century, Camaior was fully restored to the family property in neo-Renaissance style by the architect Serafino. In 1377 Saint Catherine of Siena founded the monastery of Santa Maria degli Angeli in the castle of Belcaro. Today the castle of Belcaro still maintains the look of old manor surrounded by greenery: an avenue of Oaks, downy Oaks and leads to the castle through a large park. Il leccio is the plant that predominates in the Castle Park and oak plants (in fact quite dangerous because they protrude noticeably on the road) are located at the sides of the road leading to Belcaro.
