Horses from the rival contrade (teams) of Snail (L), Caterpillar (C) and Wold at San Martino compete in the traditional Palio horse race at the Il Campo square in the Tuscan city of Siena on August 16. The Palio race is held twice a year in Siena and jockeys ride bareback around a makeshift track set up in the city's central square.
