From the outside this is a gorgeous structure, but due to extensive indoor renovations we were unable to go inside. We peeked in a little bit, and could see that it will be awesome when completed, which we were told by a construction worker will be next spring. There was a restaurant on site, and a wine tasting establishment, and... More

it's gorgeous from the outside, but you cannot go in. NO info provided as to how long we need to wait for it to be open again. Wish we'd known as we travelled 20 miles just to see it.

We walked to the church of San Biagio today, only to find all the doors closed by builders' paraphernalia. There were no signs, either in the town, at the tourist office, or anywhere on the church site itself to explain that the church was closed to visitors. There was also no indication of how long it would be closed. Of... More

There is a Special, relaxing atmosphere outside of the church, when you go there in the early morning or in the late afternoon. You will find less people and can appreciate it.

I didn't get to go inside, since it was closed, but the outside of the building is beautiful. We enjoyed walking around and looking at the architecture up close. Of course, if you are short on time and the church has not been re-opened, you can see the church from a distance when you're in Montepulciano.

There is plenty of parking at this attraction but it is seriously closed and by the look of it will remain so for quite a while x

Church was closed. If you are counting on seeing it during your visit, you had better confirm it has reopened, or visit elsewhere. Will likely be closed for a while.

The temple is sinking on one side and is undergoing significant restoration efforts. As a result, a lack of tourism is assumed and the area is sort of "off limits". Our tour guide was able to negotiate a peak inside for us while the workers were on break, but there wasn't much to see as everything was covered in protective,... More

This "temple" by Sangallo is a wonderful example of the ideal Renaissance domed church - a small scale realisation of Bramante's original idea for St Peter's.

Outside the walls of Montepulciano is this beautiful renaissance Greek cross central plan church located. The central dome is supported by a drum. The side opposite to the entrance has a semi-circular apse. The façade is flanked by the multi floor bell tower, with numerous decorative elements, which ends in a pyramidal cusp. The design included two symmetrical towers, but... More
