Beautiful full of light interior of the 15th century Cathedral is remarkable in its simplicity and harmony. Rather plain facade matches the interior, austere and plain, but very imposing and impressive. Lovely church in magical Pienza...

Just beautiful… It’s a stand out for a cathedral in such a small town… Was a highlight for us in Pienza

The town of Pienza is just gorgeous. The beautiful courtyard in front of the church has many flowers, just like the rest of the town. After seeing so many gorgeous ornate churches during our visit, this one was not that impressive. It is worth stopping...More

This church was a tranquil, restrained building. There was a large crypt which, because of the local topography, was largely above ground. This contained some ancient sheet music from around the time of Guido D'Arezzo and some 400-year-old portraits of ecclesiastical figures with amazingly modern...More

The simple facade belies what you will find inside. I only gave three stars because of the lack of information inside on this lovely structure. This church should be celebrated!

This place is pretty spartan on the interior but I enjoyed the work that is currently being done to ensure this place doesn’t fall off the end of the cliff. You can see throughout the church how the structure is being almost torn in half....More

It's pretty but small in comparison with the others you can see in Italy. Worth the picture at least.

Beautiful in the fact that it isn't overdone with gilt. As you move towards the alter you will get a bit discombobulated as it is leaning, not like the Tower of Pisa, but it leans. Worth a visit.

Sublime Church with many paintings of great value! The Senese school has been one of the best in the history of painting! "Unfortunately" the church is still used for the catholic masses during the day so sometimes it is not allowed to go inside during...More
