Chiesa della Madonna del Soccorso, Montalcino

3.9
The Madonna or Santa Maria del Soccorso is a Roman Catholic Co-cathedral church or Sanctuary located at Via Spagni in Montalcino, region of Tuscany, Italy. The church was erected across the centuries and thus erected in multiple styles, including a renaissance layout, baroque interiors, and a neoclassical facade.HistoryThe church was initially built at the site of a chapel set against the walls of the town, with a frescoed Madonna and Child. A church build around this icon was consecrated in 1330. In 1553, it gained the title of Santa Maria del Soccorso after a repulse of besieging landsknechts of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor.Among the interior artworks is a Crucifixion by Francesco Vanni and a Virgin surrounded by Angelic musicians with Saints Sebastian and Roch (circa 1527) by Vicenzo da San Gimignano. This latter painting was originally found in the Oratory of St Roch in the town.The bell-tower was added in 1625, and the facade was not completed til the early 19th-century. In 1913, the Madonna del Soccorso was named patron of the Diocese and city, and a festival is held in her honor on May 8, with a special celebration every 25 years.

  • The Church was begun in the 14th century but finished only in the 18th century with the façade. Within baroque altars and a few works. Not a bad Church but in the area you can find much more ancient and interesting.

  • If you make the walk around the city following the city walls you will find this church surrounded by the cru vineyards of Tiezzi. Beautiful church absolutely worth a visit.  more »
  • Subject where from the garden you can enjoy a great panorama. Nice view over the vineyards of Tajuddin who are down there. Inside then it remains somewhat disappointed.
