  • Very interesting experience. Shame only opened so rarely and the church is opened only on Sunday. Definitely worth visiting.  more »
  • Nice place, a hidden treasure in the Tuscan hills. We were there with a group of friends, travellers of all ages

  • Just 20 Km from Siena, towers, a village, or rather, a village like many others, perhaps, like everyone else you get from a stop absently, in crossover to another of your trip to the Tuscan hills; but that actually hides inside a Pearl, a jewel of rare beauty. Here is a small cloister on three different floors, will be adequate to accomplish over the centuries: the first floor was constructed around 1200, the second in the 14th century, and the third a century later. The oldest order is also what is most striking, given the polychrome marble (white, green, black and red) that compose it, but also by the fact that the columns that surround it are all different: some are square, round, octagonal, others more. The architectural part comes in addition with a series of flower pots along the whole perimeter of the cloister. A flaw? The opening hours. The cloister, in fact can only be visited on Monday and Friday from 9 to 12. So you need to plan your visit to the restricted days and times. A little note: it would be nice if those responsible are set up to keep the Church open during the opening hours of the cloister, rather than just Sunday morning for religious services.
