Montichiello is a tiny fortified medieval village known as the “terrazza della Val’ Orcia” - the terrace of Val d’Orcia- for its wonderful hilltop position offering vast and outstanding views over Pienza and the surrounding waving hills. Its defensive thick walls and towers are preserved only in part, just 3 of the original 17 towers have survived. In the highest part of the village you find the Torre del Cassero, that fortunately has remained intact and is now of private property. You enter the village by Porta Sant’Agata through a beautiful leaning watchtower, and your attention is soon captured by the finely restored stone houses, beautifully adorned by colorful flower pots and lovely little balconies. The village still maintains its charming medieval characteristics with its perfect arches, ancient stairs, lovely window sills, and characteristic balconies.
