Like a Tardis!

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!

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!

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.

From the bustling piazza outside, the duomo is a haven of peace. Fine stained glass windows of saints are high up the walls and there are a various works of art. In general, it appears quite plain compared with some of the ostentatious religious buildings but it seems to be the better for it.

the Duomo is very modest from outside, but inside it offers a charming look into the Italian style of those times

We were here on Easter weekend. The church is beautiful inside. The sounds of the choir was like the sounds of angels singing! Brought tear to our eyes! This is a must see when in Montepulciano.

This Duomo has an unfinished exterior, and thus pales by comparison to other Duomos in Italy (Florence, Orvieto, etc), The interior has some interesting statuary and artwork, but again is less memorable than many others. Nonetheless, since Montepulciano has fewer attractions than most other Tuscany cities (other than wine-tasting locales) the Duomo is worth the 30-45 minutes it takes to... More

Plain on the outside makes you wonder if you even want to venture inside. Don't miss. Loved the simplicity after all the overwhelming beauty of the cathedrals in Rome.

Wonderful Tuscany hill town. The best advice we had beforehand was to drive to the top and park. This allows for easy walking to the Duomo. The road to the top of the hill in Montepulciano has no obvious sign posts. It will be best if you get directions from a local (like we did) using one of the area... More

The Duomo, built in the 16-17 centuries, the altar was beautiful. Very simple, as perhaps like the people it represented. Farmers, families and countrymen that lived in the area in medieval times. The frescos were beautiful as were the worship areas. The outside in contrast looks very much like a a normal building in the area.
