15th century covered gallery commissioned by Pope Pius II in honour of his family. Hard to miss but not a must see.
Jun. 2019
This Renaissance covered gallery is located in the Piazza Logge del Papa directly opposite the Palazzo Piccolomini and, on the same side of the piazza, but just down from, the impressive Chiesa di San Martino. The Logge is open on three sides and the facade has four columns that support three arched entrances but these are fenced off. Apart from the frieze on the front facade which is a dedication to the Piccolomlini Family, which was the Pope's family, and some Piccolomini heraldry emblems on the Via di Pantaneto side, it is largely undecorated,

The Logge was completed in 1462, one year after construction started.

Not a must see.

Under renovation

We passed in June 2018 and there was a lot of scaffolding around the loggia so expect it may be some time before this can be viewed properly.

The Loggia of the Pope was another meeting place in the medieval Siena. It looks austere in comparison with the Loggia of Merchants.

Old meeting place

This dates from the 15th century and is rather plain compared to the one used by merchants not far away as it does not have any painted or other decorations. It is closed off with a fence.

Nothing much to see
Jan. 2017 • Couples
This loggia was built by Pope Pius II in the 15th century and currently it is not used and is fenced off denying access to it. It is a fairly basic with no ornately painted ceilings as seen on a loggia near the main piazza. Not something to go out of the way to see but in walking around Siena you are likely to come across it.
