Quant and cute Cathedral, gives you a sense for the age of the building in the area, worth a visit and just outside of town.

The Duomo in Montepulciano is a splendid example of not judging "a book (or attraction) by the cover (outside). I hesitated going in but at my wife's gentle nudging we did - & the Duomo is simply a masterpiece site. Behind that frankly ugly outer facade is an interior w floors of dark marble, square supporting columns, art filled walls... More

Yes, it is touristy but you must visit here. Well worth it and much better in person than any photo will do justice.

After the long climb and past the multitude of shops the Duomo and the Piazza are quite special. A respite of quiet contemplation in this immense nave.

This is quite a grand looking church from the outside. It is down the hill from the town. Inside not extremely ornate but it was fun to visit.

What a wonderful and awe inspiring place, having visited the restaurant opposite several time we managed to find the Duomo open one evening so we slipped inside to have a look, wow, it's well worth a visit and the avenue of trees leading down to the Duomo is pretty impressive too.

Worth a visit if in town in any case. Entry is free. The dome, while beautiful and cute inside, is nothing spectacular...

Breathtaking! The outside of the Duomo is so beautiful and when we walked inside........it was truly stunning! The detail, structure, and elegance of the Duomo must be seen and appreciated!

The Duomo is very unassuming on the outside with a facade that looks like it has never been completed but inside it is huge and quite inspiring. Well worth the visit!

A lovely surprise was waiting inside. I had no idea this plain church from the outside would be so grand inside. It was unique to see the confessionals that you kneel outside of rather go into a small room. Very interesting and worth your time.

Thank Moniquessimo
