A good part of the findings made in this area, in particular in the Etruscan necropolis between the ninth and first centuries BC, can now be admired in the collection of the Archaeological Civic Museum of Sarteano, housed in the sixteenth-century Palazzo Gabrielli, located in the historic center of Sarteano.
The lower floor of the museum is dedicated to the Pianacce necropolis, including a life-size reconstruction of the extraordinary tomb of the Quadriga Infernale (4th century BC), whose pictorial cycle is among the most significant of Etruscan art, as well as one of the best preserved.
As well as an ancient historical past, Sarteano also has a medieval past. The most significant part of this is the 10th-century square castle, which clearly shows the medieval spirit of the village.
Among the great places to visit are the Church of San Martino in Foro and the Collegiate Church dedicated to Santi Lorenzo and Appolinare, where some valuable works are kept. Other places of interest are the Palazzo Comunale, the Palazzo Piccolomini, the Palazzo Goti-Fanelli and the Palazzo Cennini, and another little jewel is the Arrischianti Theatre.
