Yes it is worthy. Splendid views around. The place is quite different from the crowded famous places. This is also that Sienna! Quiet places where you can rest and admiring gorgeous views and restful atmosphere. In the top 5 for me.

This castle and church could be easily missed, but they are certainly worth a bit of a side trip between the main cathedral area and the bus station. Free to look around and beautiful inside, don't miss it!

Quiet and peaceful Casa to visit the patron saint of Siena. Interesting to find out about her life and influences. The floors and artwork inside are beautiful.

Lovely atmosphere here, a kind of cloisters set beside the street of fabric dyers where St Catherine was born. Looking into her life, she was a very interesting and influential woman.
