  • Beautiful Pieve which is located in the medieval village of Monticchiello just outside Pienza, deserves to be seen

  • On the way to Pienza, very close, there is this small town, but full of details and history that make it worth stopping to visit it. Buildings, art, characteristic corners ...

  • For those in the vicinity (road SP146, between Montepulciano and Pienza) and want to give a small "stretched" to know the village. But do not expect much, besides the curiosity of visiting a small town of just over 200 inhabitants, according to the 2011 census presented on Wikipedia, with alleys and stone houses, remnants of medieval times. The church, built between the 14TH and 15TH centuries, is very modest, with a small central nave and a very simple Gothic façade as well. In its interior, a partially restored fresco depicting the life of Gherardo of Villamagna and a few works of art. The typical Tuscan streets, with the Italian cypresses on each side, which are close to Monticchiello and give access to the village make the trip very pleasant and even unforgettable. For those who travel by car, access is made through the Porta di Monticchiello, which is a little distant from the only parking allowed for tourists and visitors, located in the Strada Comunale Pienza, some 200 meters from the door, with not very steep ascent. The small Italian cities do not generally allow parking in the historical area (fines are applied). Therefore, it is best to plan the trip in order to use parking lots outside the center, even if they are paid.

  • Small church inside full of fourteenth-century frescoes by a Siennese painter describing the life of Saint Catherine of Alexandra. In the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament a painting by Pietro Lorenzetti depicting the Madonna of Monticchiello (original is in the Diocesan Museum of Pienza).

  • Very interesting parish church restored many times over the centuries, the first structure is dating back to 1200, throughout the various restorations were ripirtati to live unhealthy of aisles frescoes unfortunately. Beautiful antique terracotta floor. It keeps a copy of the politician by Pietro Lorenzetti in a side chapel altar (preserved at the museo di Pienza)
