On the road from Sarteano to Radicofani lies the former Vallumbrosan Abbey of the Holy Trinity of Spineta, whose name evokes thick woods and brambles (thorn - “spina” in Italian), the ideal setting for a monastic community. It grew up around the church, built in 1085 by Willa, the widow of Pepone I Manenti, and later donated to the Benedictine monks of Abbadia San Salvatore. It was suppressed in 1652 and is now a cultural centre offering accommodation.
