  • We got the tip from our landlord and it's very worth it. Is now privately owned, but is open to the public free of charge on Mondays and Fridays. Very impress-see photos!

  • A really wonderful place where time seems to have stopped. It's worth a visit. And stop and have a chat with the locals.

  • Beautiful landscape!
  • Towers is a small village located in the province of Siena near Rosia: can be reached along a Boulevard of cypresses and you will immediately notice its medieval structure with an arched doorway that opens in stone walls. The village is famous for the Abbey of Santa Mustiola, consecrated in the year 1189, where they always lived the Vallombrosan monks. The Church contains the relevant sections of the original plan with a single nave with a semicircular apse and vaulted ceiling wooden roof: the more archaic of the paintings of the Church is a Madonna and child in the first decades of the 14th century, acquired in the collection of Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena in the nineteenth century, and the work of a late follower of Duccio di Boninsegna. Next to the Church, through a portal surmounted by a plaque, it leads to the cloister of the monastery, a stunning realization still perfectly preserved. The architecture consists of three orders and the collection seems to be dated at the time of consecration of the Abbey in 1189. The cloister is now placed in a private complex, but can be visited in the mornings of Monday and Friday.
