You will be overcome by the simple beauty of the church and the classical form both inside and outside. We attended a wedding there in July and from the first moment so many details caught the eye: the interior including the cross at the high...More

Literally just outside the walls of Pienza lies this architecturally interesting little church. Don't expect frescos, but look at the simple architecture so typical for the Romanesque style.

A bit out of the city but worth the drive (5 minutes). It's a really old church with a interesting atmosphere. Don't miss the catacomb.

This very old church offers peace of mind. It is brilliantly located and overseen by many tourists. The architecture is very special, especially on the architraves. It was one of the favourite churches of St. Francis.

This small country church just outside the walls of the beautiful town of Pienza is worth the short walk / detour. It's only a ten minute walk. The setting is nice and there is a gorgeous "Pienza Ring Walk" that takes you out to Villita...More

There's nothing here save for this simple, elegant little church that seems ancient and quite holy. It's strangely haunting and in a beautiful spot. Walk a little further down the road past the church and you'll see the "Gladiator' road.
