  • They have a beautiful museum!
  • "Contrada Captain of the Wave" The contrada has its origin approximately in the century. XV, with the union of two military companies. Such companies were in charge of guarding the Tyrrhenian coast of the Republic of Siena. And for some this is the origin of the color - blue and white - and of the contrada emblem - a dolphin - which reminds us of the sea. The contrada is located behind the City Hall Palace, on the right. 'Onda' is proud to have been the home of a great artist: Giovanni Duprè. The visit to the Museum is particularly interesting, because in addition to all the 'palios' that the contrada won over the years, there are also all the costumes of the extras and knights. To observe the "palios" is to travel back in time, perceiving the history of the various political moments that the city went through.
