  • I fell in love with this place when I saw the movie "the English patient", then, move on to those places, and find him there waiting for you. A nice surprise!

  • Block but a few kilometers from Pienza, this monastery, fully recovered and converted into a farmhouse, is interesting and unusual. Valuable frescoes by Sodoma, the refectory, open only from 16.00 to 18.00. Also known abroad because there were filmed some scenes of the famous film "the English patient"

  • I visited the monastery of s. Anna in Camprena on 10 August of 2017. Coming from Monte Oliveto Maggiore and headed to San Quirico d'Orcia, this monastery is well worth a visit both for its happy location on a hill in Val d'Orcia, both for its architectural ensemble, which while not constituting a fundamental monument Neither interesting, keeps its own formal and aesthetic unity that makes a place still enjoyable to watch, and more pleasant to live than to visit. The vast complex of the ' 400 comprises large and broad church in adjacent convent and rustic buildings that flank the main block. Fallen into oblivion for a long time, has recently been reported in good shape and entrusted by the Curia to an association which manages tourist blanks. Here you can rent individual rooms or entire flats, with prices that match some budgets. Of course, being owned by the Church, this has thought to make profit, but personally I see no other way, nowadays, to keep alive an immense architectural heritage in order to prevent it from falling into total disrepair soon. However, once took pleasure from the site and from the rest of the place, you can access the cloister-reviewed in the Baroque period-which leads to the most valuable part of the site, namely the refectory decorated with frescoes that Sodom we performed to the earliest of 500, in conjunction with ben more substantial action at Monte Oliveto Maggiore. This is a grotesque 6 log with multiple panes, which adorn the back wall, the wall and the left wall of the refectory. Are not monumental in size but of great artistic value, comparable to those performed in the Abbey said above but I think even more articulate and more free stylistic freedom. Don't have a male who has come this far to be then closed doors: we all have internet on your mobile phone; In addition to making calls to friends to tell the same useless things ever, use them to inform us in time on the find: courage, we can do this ...
