Radicofani's main site is it's tower, which is perfectly square, like it's made of rose brick lego. The tower is part of the castle, which is on the towns highest point atop a hill. The rest of the castle is arranged with an external pentagonal and an internal triangle – it's a very angular structure. This isn't the original tower – it's been destroyed several times and always rebuilt the same way. This one dates from the 18th Century, and holds a museum about itself and the towns other claims to fame.

The town's other landmark is the Romanesque Church of San Pietro which has some beautiful ceramic work within.
