beautiful construction
Jun 2021
dating back to the 10th century, this little church a bit outside of Pienza is worth the descent and climb back to the city. the tower and the front are very interesting.

A beautiful and historic church!
Oct 2019
A well preserved example of a small and significant church - just on the outskirts of Pienza, it is easy to walk to.

Small church with a claim to fame!
Oct 2019 • Friends
This little old Romanesque church was where two popes were baptized. That surely must be a claim to fame back in the day! It is always hard to imagine such abandoned places were once filled with lots of people living around and about. The countryside is beyond beautiful and this is a worthy stop if you are walking around here.

Dating to the 13th Century
Sep 2018
A beautiful church with a well preserved 13th century tower located on the outskirts of the town of Pienza. Step inside for a moment of quiet reflection.

Lovely, unpretentious country church
Apr 2019 • Couples
This church is just outside the town of Pienza, a short walk on a lovely road with fantastic views along the way. The church feels quite ancient--not filled with art, but rather with the feeling that people have worshiped in this quiet, unpretentious space for many centuries. Definitely worth a visit. There is also a very nice lawn next to the church where one could have a picnic.

Outside of town, so watch for it and stop if you see it.
Sep 2018 • Couples
This old church is located outside of town, so watch for it and stop if you see it, since you may be driving around to find the public pay parking lots.

Charming little church with a history
Sep 2018 • Couples
On the edge of the town of Pienza is a charming little romanesque church, Pieve di Corsignano which has the distinction of being the place where Pope Pius II was baptized. The name of the church comes from the original name for the town of Pienza which was Corsignano. There are no audio guides or information pamphlets here, just a modest little church, lovely in its simplicity.

Enjoyable walk down from the town
Oct 2018 • Solo
A church has been here since the 7th century but this one dates back to the 12th. It's filled with medieval symbolism including the Regulus snake at the top of one of the capitols. Be sure to read about the church before going so you don't miss any of the interesting things inside including the original baptismal font where Pope Pius II and his nephew, Pius III, were baptized.
