So basically this means there is allot of Contrada activity going on during any and every visit to Siena (and especially the Contrada activities leading up to the spectacular Palio horserace).

Not being a local (and also being a foreigner) makes Siena’s particular Contrada tradition one of the more fascinating and interesting aspects of the city.
Which ones are my favorites? Well, my dear friend is part of The Seashell, and I am partial to the The Wave (for personal reasons, basically because I love the ocean and also because one year I was able to see, first-hand, the blessing of their horse before the Palio horserace). However, I also like the sound of the Giraffe, the Goose, and the Unicorn, and who wouldn’t want to be part of the Caterpillar?!
