Location: Castello di Montemassi      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 3 August 2019

Montemassi is a small village in Tuscany.
In the Middle Ages it was the site of an important castle. Only a few ruins remain of this castle, but the position of the castle allowed to control this part of Tuscany and is very panoramic.
In 1328 it was conquered by the condottiero Guidoriccio da Fogliano, fighting for Siena; the event is depicted in a famous fresco in the Palazzo Pubblico of Siena.


spontaneously i was reminded of a famous village in F, name starting with Go. Probably i'm wrong

A riddle in a riddle ... if Luis Góngora rated this beautiful panorama, then it's perhaps Andalusia :-) !?!

@Giuseppe, how can you doubt? ;-))
I'm so sure, I'll invite you to a dinner, if it's not true! You can't see Santa M. on the panorama (its on the right). The church on the picture is called Sant'A. A... :-D
