July 2nd & August 16th
The Palio resembles the culture and traditions of the Sienese people. It has ancient origins with some regulations still valid since 1644. The city’s territory is divided into seventeen districts with boundaries established in 1729 by the Proclamation of Violante of Bavaria, the city government. Each Contrada is a small state within Siena and the rivalry between the different small quarters comes to live twice a year. In this race the jockeys get to ride horses that are not entirely tamed without a saddle. The race has only one rule, the first horse to cross the line is the winner, even without its jockey.
