As one of the five hilltowns that make up Cinque Sorelle (five sisters), Trequanda in Tuscany’s province of Siena, is surrounded by thick forests, olive groves and wonderful vineyards. The inhabitants, like many in this region, live off the abundance of olive groves and it’s a perfect place to taste the local Tuscan produce. Trequanda’s 12th century Cacciaconti Castle is a main attraction and overlooks the town. With its majestic cylindrical stone tower and original gates, it’s a lovely site to visit, and then here’s also the interesting 13th century Romanesque Church of St Peter and Andrew with its black and white façade, a rather unique design for the region. In the town itself you’ll find a number of lovely restaurants, a café and osteria serving everything from pizzas to crepes and traditional fare. There’s also many shops, some of which sell the celebrated wines and olive oils. And for a day trip, the stunning cities of Siena and Florence are nearby, for a trip you’ll never forget.
