  • Do not miss seeing these 14 century frescoes. It is really wonderful that they have been preserved and restored. The churches must have been such colourful places back then.  more »
  • While not truly exceptional in any particular manner, Pieve dei Santi Leonardo e Cristoforo is a nice older church that is easy to visit while you are there.  more »
  • Take your time to see the church: nothing much to see beyond the architecture, but it is worth the visit.  more »

  • Monticchiello is a lovely village. Cared for with love and dedication by its inhabitants, in every detail. It's all a garden. The Church is richly frescoed and contains a wonderful painting of Madonna with the child of Pietro Lorenzetti. I remember it with emotion, as one of the most beautiful Italian villages.

  • Ancient church in an ancient township. Very nice and gives visit in my opinion. I can't describe beauty correctly and in appropriate terms, but I really liked it

  • 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)
