About Santa Maria della Scala

Santa Maria della Scala is one of the oldest hospitals in the world, now transformed into a remarkable museum complex. Situated across from Siena's majestic cathedral, this landmark offers an in-depth look at medieval charity and healthcare, alongside stunning frescoes and artefacts that span centuries.

Best Time/Season to Visit:

The museum is fascinating year-round, but visiting in the off-peak seasons of spring and fall can provide a more leisurely and intimate experience without the crowds of high summer.
