Radicofani is a small medieval village located at the foot of Mount Amiata about 70 km from Siena in southern Tuscany in Val d’Orcia. Radicofani is known thanks to the exploits of the famous gentleman brigand Ghino di Tacco, also celebrated by Dante in the Divine Comedy and by Boccaccio in the Decameron. The Ghibelline Ghino di Tacco, a tuscan sort of Robin Hood, made the fortress his inaccessible refuge along the Via Francigena.


The Rocca di Radicofani appears to the sight already from tens of kilometers away and stands out on the small village, it remains a quadrangular tower surrounded by the remains of more recent fortifications. It is a place rich in history that over time has had an important strategic value, as well as being a place of pristine beauty. Going down from the Rocca towards the village you will come across a delightful pine grove, with arches and wells partly hidden by the vegetation.

The most important monument of the village is the ancient Romanesque church of San Pietro Apostolo and in the public gardens next to the square you will find the celebrating statue of the “falcon of the Val d’Orcia” Ghino di Tacco. Also worthy of note are the Palazzo Pretorio and the Palazzo della Posta.
