Siena miracles and legends
Every Medieval city worth its salt has at least one legend to its name, and Siena is no exception!
Walking through its streets, we’ll see a number of palazzos and churches that provide the settings for tall tales from the past and legends linked to the city’s origins, ghost stories and even werewolf sightings!
We’ll talk about Pia dei Tolomei, the ghost of the Botanical Garden and the Knights of Malta. Then, turing to more serious things, we’ll discuss the many testimonials of miracles that have occurred in the city over the centuries, some of which have endured to the present day, like that of the uncorrupted pieces of the host in the Basilica of S. Francesco.
