  • the beautiful Basilica of Santa Margherita. located in a square with a breathtaking view, I highly recommend you check them out
    View original
  • The basilica is worth a visit for both the structure and the wonderful scenery but primarily to visit the body of Santa Margherita and hear his story, appreciate its modernity and his courage. In the square in front of the benches allow you to admire the view.

  • Beautiful big Church, at the top of Cortona, with spectacular views. Worth a visit, worth the walk or take the free shuttle bus if you are visiting the Fort.  more »

  • One of the most beautiful churches in the area. Easy to reach by car, although a lot of city guides let you take the roman staircase which is a hefty climb so beware 😊
  • 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.
  • The building was started in the 1332. works​ continuing for 300 years​. What we have now we see the work of 1800
  • 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
