    Wedged between two wings of cypresses that serrano sides, the white façade of the chapel Madonna looks from the road and motorists the notice it as soon as. Better to approach this place leave the car and venture out on foot along a path, enjoying the beauty of the landscape in which we immerse ourselves. At the end we will be rewarded for our efforts by accessing an intimate corner of Tuscany. We will look closely at the stone facade of Rapolano, the belfry, the beautiful cypresses. World Heritage site under UNESCO protection, also appears between the locations of the Ridley Scott film Gladiator, as a setting of the fields-Elysées.

    beautiful and picturesque little church surrounded by the Tuscan countryside. It's obvious on the road leading to San Quirico (also from the fact that it is full of tourists). Great for pictures toscana style

    Motorcycle holiday, from San Quirico d'Orcia! The signs to finding it is practically non-existent, is a lonely place among the beautiful hills of the Val d'Orcia! recommend to visit it at sunset, that makes the place even more impressive! He proceeds to San Quirico and at the farm house Cretaiole turn and take the dirt road to the left! After leaving the bike on a dirt road, we proceed for about a kilometer and a half walk past a closed gate (see photo) and you immediately arrive at the Church!

    An incredible accident. Family and I driving around looking for a place to have a nice picnic. Park on the road decide to take a walk. Come across this beautiful building. Take some incredible pictures having no idea it's a well known landmark. Return to our hotel where we see the same building on the front page of an Italian Architectural Magazine. Incredible accident indeed. On Private Property so be respectful. History: farmer built this small Church so his workers didn't have to be away from work too long in order to attend church.

    Recorded for the first time in a document dated 1590, in the chapel of the Madonna Madonna was a statue of the Madonna attributed to Andrea della Robbia: this statue is now housed in the Church of San Francesco in San Quirico d'Orcia which, precisely because of this statue, is more known as the Church of our Lady of Vitaleta. The chapel Madonna was redesigned, both internally and externally, by the architect Giuseppe Partini in 1884, inspired by 16th-century models. $p 01 the fame of this small church is certainly at its artistic value, but the geographical location in which it is located: in Val d'Orcia, halfway between San Quirico d'Orcia and Pienza, surrounded by an exceptional landscape, unique. This has meant that the chapel Madonna has become a real symbol of Tuscany, there are many times where it was photographed and represented in newspapers and magazines.
