A Duomo is a cathedral, the seat of the bishop in an area diocese. Each cathedral is a church, but not all churches are cathedrals. And most cathedrals exemplify gaudy wealth. Il Duomo di Pienza portrays simplicity, and understated elegance. In front of the Duomo...More

A must see when you are in Pienza. The city was well planned and the Duomo adds to its charm. The Duomo is in the main square and is the centerpiece of the city.

The simple facade belies what you will find inside. I only gave three stars because of the lack of information inside on this lovely structure. This church should be celebrated!

This place is pretty spartan on the interior but I enjoyed the work that is currently being done to ensure this place doesn’t fall off the end of the cliff. You can see throughout the church how the structure is being almost torn in half....More
