Castellina in Chianti is a village located in the Chianti hills. The first human settlement is of the Etruscan
Age, which was probably devastated by the Gallic raids. During the Middle age the village was known as “Salingolpe” and around the
XI century it was given in fee from countess Matilde to counts Guidi, and later to nobles Del Trebbio. At the beginning of XV
century the town was transformed in a fortress, of which today remains the impressive Rocca. The Rocca is a massive building
located in the main square with a fourteenth-century crenellated keep, from which you can enjoy a wonderful view. The Rocca, from
April 21st 2006, hosts the Sienese Chianti’s Archaeological Museum. The museum, realized using innovative
technologies, presents the history of the whole Sienese Chianti area, including the territories of Castellina, Radda, Gaiole and
Also Castellina, as the other neighbouring towns, has a remarkable artistic heritage. Among the several interesting buildings we can mention:
San Salvatore’s Church in Castellina - The building has medieval origins but it shows modern structures in neoromantic style.
San Martino’s Church in Cispiano - From this church comes from a fifteenth-century bronze Cross ascribed to the Sienese artist Francesco D’Antonio, actually preserved in the parish church of Castellina in Chianti.
Church of San Giorgio alla Piazza - It has romanic origin and is certified since 1084, it still has a part of the ancient façade.
Parish church of San Leonino in Conio - The medieval aspect is due to the nineteenth-century restorations, during which also the decoration of the inside vaults has been renovated.
