Visiting the Leocorno Contrada Museum

In our Exploring Siena walks around the historic city center, we had the lucky chance to see the Museum of the Leocorno Contrada, which the neighborhood volunteers kindly opened for us.  It was a great opportunity to see some of the costumes and memorabilia from the neighborhood’s history, as well as the Palio banners they have won over the years and the beautiful chapel where the blessing of the horse ceremony is performed.
