Surrounded by chestnut trees, on the southern side of Mount Amiata, the historic centre of Santa Fiora is divided into three thirds. The oldest part of the town is the Tertiere Castello, with remains of Aldobrandeschi buildings, then you pass the Porticciola to reach the Tertiere Borgo where the Jewish ghetto was located, and then arrive in the Tertiere di Montecatino, after crossing the Porta San Michele.

Not to be missed,  the Peschiera (16th century) suggestive Sforza park-garden and the Madonna delle Nevi church that rises above the sources of the Fiora river, visible under the glass floor, with frescoes by Francesco Nasini. Palazzo Sforza Cesarini, with admirable frescoes, the parish church of Sante Flora and Lucilla which houses the largest collection in the world of Robbian terracottes and the Museum of mercury mines of Mount Amiata are also worth a visit.
