  • San Quirico d'Orcia is a common Italian of 2 672 inhabitants called sanquirichesi [2] in the province of Siena in Tuscany. In the hamlet of Vignoni is an ancient castle, the castle of Vignoni, almost uninhabited, former residence of the Salimbeni in the 12th century, and later of Abd from the 14th century. He severed a medieval tower, a Romanesque church restored (inside was preserved a crucifix by Giambologna, now kept at the museo di Montalcino, and a baptismal font from the 15th century, now at the Collegiate Church of San Quirico) and, next to the church planting (rebuilt in the early 1990s) of the 15th century Palazzo of the Abd, which hatched the conspiracy against the Spanish oppressors of Siena (1555-1559). San Quirico has also some churches relevant historical-artistic point of view: in addition to the aforementioned Collegiata di San Quirico (more precisely, Collegiate Church of Santi Quirico e Giulitta) and the Romanesque church of San Biagio in Vignoni, should be delivered the Church of St. John the Baptist in Bagno Vignoni, the Church and the chapel of our Lady of Vitaleta, the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and the Oratorio della Misericordia. Inside San Quirico d'Orcia was shot on film school in the world. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  • Can you picture postcards with hills and cypresses? Yes, those famous worldwide and representing the Tuscany? Behold, those magnificent landscapes of the Val d'Orcia and have been declared world heritage sites by Unesco. And San Quirico d'Orcia is a bit the "capital", both for its location at the heart of the Valley, but also for its history. San Quirico d'Orcia, which origins are Etruscan, probably is in the province of Siena and is crossed by the Via Francigena, and together with the municipalities of Castiglione d'Orcia, Montalcino, Pienza, Radicofani is part of the Val d'Orcia, which is also an important Park natural, artistic and cultural interest. A few kilometers away is an ancient village Spa, Bagno Vignoni, whose waters flow from underground, into the tub in the middle of the square, at a temperature of 50° e are used for treatment in the nearby settlement. The landscapes of San Quirico and Val d'Orcia all recount the beauty, work, tastes, feelings of this territory: Yes, it is humanity's landscapes.
