  • Shame about the long crack in the floor, otherwise an excellent choir, altar pieces nothing short of amazing, a little gem.

  • We visited here during our daytrip in Toscany. Nice to visit whilst in Pienza. Not the best church in the world, but perfect for a stroll and visit  more »
  • If you decide to visit Pienza you will discover a beautiful and incanato Tuscan village. You can go directly to via Mercatelli where you will find a large parking fee, it costs €1.70 the first hour and about half for hours. Succerisco to do a couple of hours just because Pienza is small and turns very quickly, but if you include lunch in any trattoria then do the ticket for 3/4 hours. The Cathedral is not very big and not very rich, we can say that there is a basic, but is definitely worth a visit. Bella the collegiata and the nave, beautiful and harmonious façade. To visit.

  • A beautiful church nestled in the charming village of Pienza. Imposing from the outside, looks out over a beautiful square. The Gothic interior is perhaps a bit bare, there are nonetheless valuable paintings and a beautiful painted ceiling supported by rows of columns decorated with capitals. There is also a crypt which unfortunately we didn't get to visit. More than the Church itself fascinates the square in which it is located, surrounded by historic buildings.

  • The internal aisles are projected on the façade by four pilasters. A large frame brand plan divides the lower part with the three entrances to the Church, from the top on which are three niches. The Central niche an eye that brings light to the central altar. At the top, the tympanum, the coat of arms of Piccolomini. Simple shapes and simple ....
