The Village of Trequanda

Trequanda City Hall

Trequanda is a medieval hill town whose recent history is anchored by Cacciaconti Castle, built between 1100 and 1200. The castle and its remaining walls form about 1/3 of the village, giving visitors a sense of antiquity and stability.

Situated at the edge of the Crete Senesi and Val d’Orcia, two of the most celebrated landscapes in the world, Trequanda lies at the center of the three greatest wine regions of Tuscany: Brunello, Chianti and Vino Nobile.

The natural beauty of the village environs is only two hours north of Rome and about one hour south of Florence. Wineries, cheese makers, restaurants, olive mills, historical sites, museums, and art and music venues are easily accessed to make Trequanda a heartland for understanding and enjoying Italian culture.
