Il Campo in the centre of Siena is the location for the twice yearly horse (Il Palio) race around the perimeter. The race takes place when soil is placed over the grey pavement between the stone posts and the buildings. The spectators view the race from the inside area, specially erected stands and from windows and balconies overlooking the Campo.
Notice the crowd on the left standing in the shadow of La Torre del Mangia, (the bell tower of Il Campo).
