Description

The hotel Alma Domus enjoys the privilege of being in the heart of the city of Siena and is part of the ancient complex of the Sanctuary of Santa Caterina, located in the territory of the Noble Contrada dell'Oca, just 5 minutes walk from "Piazza del Campo" .

Many of the rooms have a balcony or window with wonderful views of the historic city center and the Duomo. (The city of Siena is universally known for its huge historical, artistic, scenic heritage and for its substantial stylistic unity of medieval urban furniture, as well as for the famous Palio di Siena. For this merit, in 1995 its historic center is has been awarded the UNESCO World Heritage title by UNESCO).

The hotel is located in an old wool art (hedificium tiratorium), probably dating back to the first half of the 1300s, owned by Brunello di Brunaccio. The run of cloths was the last of the basic stages of textile production. After being tanned and fulled in fulling mills, the still wet cloth was stretched to dry on special draperies. The building, completely renovated, used as a receptive structure in 1976, keeps the front on the Vicolo del Tiratoio clearly visible, divided into five levels, a high base area with a row of large rectangular windows, in the upper floors a fourfold series of loggias, architraves on the second and fifth levels, arched on the second and third, the facing is in brick. The inside preserves of the ancient factory the powerful pillars on which the great trusses rested, in a view of the early seventeenth century, the building appears completely open on the side overlooking the Basilica San Domenico. Among other things, a small building was added to the turret, overlooking the coast from Camporegio down to Fontebranda, much later but already existing in the maps of the Leopoldian land registry of 1811.
