As you walk up through the town you will come to this church and you should take the chance to look inside. It is a light airy space that is peaceful and provides a selection of paintings and statues to admire. Apart from the wonderful views from the town this was my favorite spot.

While in Italy, we tried to visit as many churches as possible because I find them each so different and so beautiful. I loved the elaborate carved portal featuring the Virgin Mary and child flanked by St. John and St. Augustine. Both the portal and the church itself are beautiful.

Can't miss this church as you explore the town of Montepulchiano. It's on the main street and it's sure to make you stop to take a few minutes to look at it.
