Enter a Contrada
The « contrade » are the famous original houses of Siena, who still compete twice a year in the 400-year-old tradition of the Palio horse race. Each contrada has its own symbol (such as a dragon, an owl, a wolf), its own flag, & its own motto.
Join us in the grand headquarters of one of these contrada, where a house member will show you historic artifacts & share with you the story of Siena’s deep & rivalrous medieval history. You’ll even find out the contrada’s plan to defeat the neighboring houses in the next Palio.
