The territory of Radda in Chianti is located on the hills at the meeting point between the valley of the river Pesa and Arbia, in the heart of the Sienese Chianti. It was the capital of the Lega di Chianti and the seat of the Podestà.

Today the ancient Clio di Radda encloses within the circle of its walls the old medieval village, remained intact, where you can still admire the Palazzo del Podestà of the '400 with inside a beautiful fifteenth-century fresco of the Florentine school. The external emblems of the palace are very interessing, dating from the 15th to the 18th century. Also noteworthy is the Church of San Niccolò, the Piazzetta del Clio, the medium walkway, the Grand Ducal Glacier, the promenade of the walls, the Church of S.M. in Prato (ex-Capuchin convent) in restoration with a museum of Sacred Art of Chianti. Worth noting is the Romanesque church of Santa Maria Novella dating back to the 16th century. XI and the Castle of Volpaia, today a precious rural village.
