The Commune comprises the three villages of Trequanda, Petroio and Castelmuzio. The former medieval village still has visible remnants of its outer walls and two of the original three entrance portals. It stands on the top of a hill (462 m) in a well maintained natural environment of woods, tidy fields of vines, olives and cereal crops. Black cypress trees mark the landscape where the fields and farmhouses bear witness to a unique example of this fragment of "Buon Governo".
From the airy town square where stand the castle, town hall and the splendid romanic church of SS. Pietro and Andrea, the highest point of the hill, steep and narrow roads and alleys descend where the attentive visitor will be surprised to find ancient covered passages, small votive ceramics, family crests, and beautiful benches in travertine and tufa. A third of the village is taken up by the castle Cacciaconti and its various annexes including a small ornamental garden. The majestic stone tower, partly rebuilt after the war, dominates the entire complex from the north-east and is a singular witness to the original fortified castle structure. The romanic church of Saint Stefano a Cennano is also of particular interest. The communal territory occupies an area of 64 sq km, more than a third of which is covered with lush woods of oak and a wide variety of mediterranean herbs.
The road which links the villages offers a series of particulary attractive scenery and views. The climate is mild and pleasant in every season and is particularly suited to a relaxing holiday. Local farm products are of high quality: olive oil, wine, pecorino cheese, salami, honey and meats from the Chianina breed of cattle.
Castelmuzio - The structure of the country is typically medieval and it is encircled from bastions and walls. As the rest of the surrounding territory Castelmuzio belonged to Cacciaconti. Its inhabitants call it Castle even if some historical texts of the Archives of Siena's State name it Castel Mozzo. The important monuments are the Spetale of San Giovanni Batiste, Palazzo Fratini, the Center of the Confraternita di San Bernardino and the SS. TrinitÓ.
