Location

Villa La Cappella is set in the green countryside of Siena and perched upon the hill of Montesiepi.
It is located between the Abbey of San Galgano and the Chapel of Montesiepi, where the legendary Sword in the Stone is kept. La Capella was built around the same period as the adjacent Romanesque Church of Montesiepi, and was to become a convent. Much later it came to be used for civil purposes.
