Outside a wall has emerged, in squared blocks of travertine arranged on two rows, mostly stripped for the construction of the overlying Roman fortress. The northern side of the Roman fortress has been preserved, a wall eight meters high and eighty long; the rest was incorporated into the medieval walls. This side of the fortification is equipped with three towers, the lateral quadrangular ones and the central semi-cylindrical one. These fortification works date back to the first half of the first century. B.C. The first document that tells us about the Fortress of Chiusi brings the date of the year 1085. At that time belonged to Count Bulgaro, of the family of the Farolfi counts.

The property is surrounded by a private park of about 3 hectares in which there are secular trees with tall trees and also olive trees.
