The duomo is located at the top of the town in Piazza Grande. Stop by and take some pictures. While it is not distinguishable to other duomo in Tuscany it’s till worth seeing.

This Duomo is originating from medieval times. It's very spacious but also sober inside which is also due to the fact that during the war there was a fierce german resistence against the allied forces and thereby much of the buildings and arts were destroyed and this happened also to the duomo.

The Cathedral of «Santa Maria Assunta », also known as the « Duomo of Montepulciano », was constructed between 1594 and 1680, It is really an interesting visit while you are enjoying the beautiful and charming medieval town of Montepulciano. One of my favorite village in Tuscany that has retained its sense of pride and beauty.

It includes a masterpiece from the Sienese School, a massive Assumption of the Virgin triptych painted by Taddeo di Bartolo in 1401. Thé floor is also worth noting with beautiful engraving in a rose marble. Definitely worth your time and your visit.

Some of the best sites in Italy are the churches! Many are free and the pictures, statues, and buildings are better than going to a muesum. You can spend all the time in them and learn more history of Italy.

Compared to other churches in Italy, this one is nothing special. Much nicer is Temprio di San Biagio outside of the centre.

We have visited Catholic churches and cathedrals all over the world.

This one was not spectacular and did not have the wow factor. It was an ordinary cathedral in an ordinary town. That is also ok as not every church needs to have a wow factor. It was free which is rare in Italy. I felt like I was in my own parish cathedral here. I liked that it was for locals and not to impress tourists.

It’s worth a few minutes stop but I would not drive here just to come see it. Only come if you are planning on visiting Montepulciano.

If you like my review, I hope you'll click the 'helpful' button; those of us who write reviews live for those and it motivates us to do more.

The Cathedral sits in the main square of Montepulciano a city with 14th cent walls. Two of the angels from the cathedral are in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The cathedral was constructed between 1594 and 1680 Now why can't Trip Advisor find Montepulciano Cathedral but only the Italian version but I'm not writing in Italian?? There is a lovely Christmas Market in the square in front of the cathedral

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 maps with the detail of roads on the back -- showing Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino and San Gimignano.

DIRECTIONS: From the main road, take the Via di S. Pietro (to do this, you have to take a slight left up from the main road). This road goes fairly straight, parallel to the main road, but headed up the hill. Then, make the 1st left onto Via dei Filosofi. This road will wind around the hill a bit, coming to a junction, where you will turn right onto the Via di Collazzi. Then, make a very sharp left when you reach the next junction at the Fortezza. You will be on the Via San Donato for a short distance. Just after you go through the archway, there is parking on the left. DO NOT GO FURTHER, because you will be entering a restricted zone. At that point you are on the highest location of the town, and the Duomo is just a short distance away. It's PERFECT!!

GOOD LUCK!!

During our visit to the Duomo, we were lucky enough to walk in on a choir performing. It was spectacular, moving, and just so very special, I needed a tissue. It was a magical moment I will never forget!
