  • This small village in the Val d'Orcia offers great views of the surrounding valley and still retains many structures of medieval architecture. To visit..

  • We were pleasantly amazed by how many beautiful things are enclosed in this small village (the collegiate of San Quirico, the horti leonini, the church of Santa Maria Assunta, ...). Give him half a day to visit it calmly; will not disappoint you. After visiting the village do not miss the Square of the Sources in the resort Vignoni Baths. And if you have time, stop at the chapel of Our Lady of Vitaleta and the Pieve di Corsignano (both on the way to Pienza).

  • The whole val d'Orcia is worth a visit in any season, definitely autumn has its characteristics. San Quirico d'Orcia is visited very quickly and should not be forgotten.
