The tower of the ancient castle dominates the town. This charismatic town has much to offer any visitor including its beautiful medieval walls, beautiful churches, art treasures and numerous Renaissance structures - e.g. the Loggia by Vasari at the Piazza del Municipio.
Castiglion also has many festivals throughout the year including the famous Palio dei Rioni” (a horse race around the town – similar to the festival in Siena) which includes a colourful and energetic display of the ancient custom of flag-waving - dating back to the 13th century. Both of which are extraordinary shows not to be missed.
