Description

The complex of Santa Maria della Scala, in front of the great cathedral of Siena, is one of the oldest "hospitals" in Europe. As one of the first places to offer accommodation and food to pilgrims and abandoned children, it is an important historical and cultural icon. Today it is an important museum complex. Skip the line and explore everything.

Santa Maria della Scala was once a welcome sanctuary for orphans, sick people and pilgrims. Its artistically rich interior says a lot about how the underprivileged were treated in those days. There are paintings and frescoes by important artists of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, including Simone Martini, Ambrogio and Pietro Lorenzetti

Several museums and monumental areas are spread over four floors, so you can take some time to explore.

Enter Piazza del Duomo on level four and work your way down. Highlights are the Pellegrinaio - with a huge wall of 14th century frescoes depicting the life of the Virgin - and the Old Sacristy. The children's museum offers exhibitions for young people and the many altarpieces. The patio on the third floor has a medieval hayloft with a marble Fonte Gaia by Jacopo della Quercia

The Archaeological Museum on the first floor is also a treasure trove of excavated relics. Pilgrims have been coming here for centuries, now it's your turn.
