Città della Pieve
Città della Pieve is a large medieval walled town high up on a hill with a duomo (cathedral) and a large tower, the Torre del Pubblico, which at 38 metres in height dominates the main square and views up to the town for miles around. Full of alleyways, archways and beautiful architecture, much construction has been undertaken using locally made terracotta bricks. The town is popular with tourists and has many festivals during the year including Il Palio de la Terzieri (a renaissance costume parade) and a saffron festival (saffron is cultivated locally).
