Porta Senese

The gate that welcomes the wayfarer coming from Siena, is the only one that still exists in Asciano’s defensive circuit.

Also called “ del Bianchi or de’ Bianchi”being close to the properties of such family, it has been totally distorted and altered by modern day restoration.

On the top part, the Sienese symbol, Asciano’s code of arms and Bandinelli Family’s code of arms carved in travertine
