Visiting the main church is not enough to understand its role in the area, you have to get into the caves of the basement, where the original furniture of the Duomo is shown, together with masterpieces from the monks.

This cathedral was commission ed by Pope Pius ll and built in 1459. If you are looking for it, it is next to the town hall. The church is known as the Jewel of The Ideal City.

This Duomo is such a step back in time. The inside of it is beautiful. We had the pleasure of speaking to a priest while we were there and he provided us with some wonderful details about it.

Pienza was designated a protected Unesco monument in 1996 for its beautiful architecture and city-planning. From the Duomo square one can walk through the streets and look at the beautifully preserved houses that look like a picture post-card.
