It is cute but seems unfinished. The only reason we entered is because it was so cold outside that we needed some place to warm up!

Ok so this is a real church. Too many churches in Tuscany are for show. This church however is a real working church. I went to mass here and the locals all showed up, even or inn keepers! It is not standout, it is a house of God and you can tell. It is beautiful and the bells outside during... More

Loved the history and architecture. It is very photogenic, although photographing inside is discouraged, especially flash photography. Tourists were taking photos with their mobile phones. A must-see if you are visiting Montepulciano.

If you've seen quite a few churches in Italy, this one will be a little plain and rather underwhelming. Orvieto was far more impressive.

It's big, but the only thing of real interest in it is the main altar. Ortherwise it's very empty. It would be interesting to finish now, maybe in a mix of old and new styles.

This church was never completed and still awaits the facade that covers most cathedrals in Tuscany. But just walk inside the plain exterior to the most glorious sight! Very spiritual and moving to sit inside enjoy the ornate frescoes and paintings in situ.

The Duomo is on one side of the Piazza Grande which is very nice. The church itself is not very interesting, but check it out if you already climbed to the Piazza.

The vicinity of all these landmarks is so great, I was turning corners and gasping at the next thing I saw...Must have looked like the typical tourist.

A beautiful Duomo on high in Montepulciano..It is a simple Duomo In comparison to Siena or Florence but beautiful none the less and a must to see when stopping on your walk up.

It's hard to go to a more "normal" sized and decorated Duomo if you've already seen some of the big ones (we had already been to Milan, Florence, and Venice) but if you're in Montepulciano anyways, take a few minutes to peek in. Churches are some of the best ways to get a sense of the history of the town.... More
