Midway between Siena's two southern exit roads lies the tiny town of Murlo. City is perhaps too strong. There is a small fortress on a mountain, which houses a 1,400-century palace, while the city's other houses are not located within the city walls. The city was left from medieval Siena-bishop's residence. From here he ruled over a large area south of Siena.

Outside the city walls you can enjoy a breathtaking view over the South Tuscan landscapes. Through the gate when you enter the small fort you encounter, a medieval facade of stones with the palace in the middle, originally the Bishop's residence, later town hall for Murlo municipality and now Etruscan Museum.
