Beautiful in the Simplicity

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.

This old church is the centre piece of the Piazza Grande in Montepulciano. The Duomo was built in the late 16th century, and is what a church should be simple. If you are expecting the grand basilicas of Rome and Pisa then you will be disappointed, however it is what medieval Tuscany was. Inside is not well illuminated, and there... More

be sure to pay for the head set tour as it provides wonderful explanations of the Frescos and church history.

Located onPiazza Grande is the Montepulciano Duomo built during the 16-17th centuries. The exterior looks rough and unfinished particularly when you've seen Orvieto's or Siena's cathedrals. .The monumental altarpiece from 1401 by the Sienese artist di Bartolo is the highlight of the interior.

If you come to the town then you should take the time to view the church and you are certainly not going to miss the exterior when you get to the main piazza, but if looks as though it is waiting for the marble on the front to provide the finishing touch. Inside it is dark and the main attraction... More

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.
