  • The building was started in the 1332. works​ continuing for 300 years​. What we have now we see the work of 1800
  • It's a steep climb through Cortona's streets to reach the basilica (if you don't drive up to it). The rewards aren't extraordinary since the architecture and art within aren't breathtaking.But the walk and the visit make for a pleasant experience, enhanced by sweeping views along the way.
  • Very impressive church and the views from up here are wonderful! Definitely worth the climb.
  • Small church located beside the old city walls and with a superb sight of the Tuscan landscape
  • No highlights
