The atmosphere of this church is very peaceful, and there are some beautiful paintings to enjoy, including the remains of some old frescoes.Check out the Salome dancing very sedately before Herod - chapel to the left of the altar.

On the day of our visit we had this lovely church to ourselves. It contains an art collection, some of which date as far back as 1261,as well as a holy water stoup dating from 13C. From the steps of the church there are lovely views over Siena. Escape the crowds and seek out this church....it's worth the effort!

A true beauty at the South end of Siena. The church has some fin baroque pieces, and a some beautiful religious art. While not as grand as the Duomo, it is much more prayerful.
