This has been an ongoing work par excellence. It was begun at the start of the 14th Century but additions have been made almost up until the present day. In addition, while some parts were being added, others were being restored. It is therefore a miracle that the unique Gothic lines of the stone and brick building have not been lost in the process. The Civic Museum inside holds the "Majesty" by Simone Martini. The Sala della Pace (Room of Peace) is the location of the "Allegory of Government" by Ambrogio Lorenzetti which is the largest non-religious pictorial cycle from all of the Middle Ages. This cycle alone would merit a visit, even if there were nothing to see but thankfully there is much more on offer. The visiting hours vary seasonally, please check the website for varying dates.
