More picturesque from outside than inside, its interior is nice and demure. It provides a bit of shade on a cold day, makes for a really quick trip throughout your walk around the tiny Pienza city centre.

We visited here during our daytrip in Toscany. Nice to visit whilst in Pienza. Not the best church in the world, but perfect for a stroll and visit

Calm small cathedral, more simple and less ornate than many others, it felt comfortable. Good to explore as very few people visiting. Take the time to look around as there so very much to see. Quite disturbed by the very sizeable cracks across the floor about three quarters of the way down before the altar and up the walls - the problems with subsidence must be enormous. When looking at our photographs from the walls and behind you can see that it is right on the edge.

The advantage here is that you can enjoy amazing wall and ceiling paintings without the need for peace.Here another story is told and it is by no means uninteresting

I would say this was just an average duomo as in many other little Tuscan hill towns. The views from the alleyways set it apart from anywhere else. It was also interesting to see a school of budding young artists doing their best to draw it. We enjoyed the beautiful day.
