We stopping by this town because it has amazing view of Tuscany. I brought 5 cows skin, leather bags for 129 Euro from a shop look like a cave. We ate there too, delicious food. Worth visit.

This city and Lucca are the special places of Southern Tuscany. The Duomo is an important part of the culture and history of the city and no visit would be complete without calling in at the Duomo

With respect to all the beautiful things that you can see in Italy, this Duomo is really of no interest

This has the feel of a Cathedral that is actually serving the residents. It was built from 1586 to 1680 on a spot once again formerly the site of an older church. The old belfry remains. It is a bit dark inside, but it is quiet and few tourists when we were there in the morning--even though it was a... More

Very different on the outside with the brick façade that disguises the much more elaborate inside. Take some time and go in and have a look.

It is a bit dark inside so if you plan to take photos insde they might not be so good. On the other side, leave your camera or phone and enjoy the view. Duomo is wonderful, calm and peaceful. Just be careful, as it might be closed after 6pm so you might miss it.

The Duomo is one of the buildings that dominates the Grand Piazza at the top of Montepulciano. Montepulciano was a strategically important hill town for many centuries before and during the Renaissance, and this building and its predecessor church were important buildings to its residents. The Duomo is unfinished and not very attractive on the outside, but inside there is... More

the church is pretty dark, so even though photos are allowed, the main altarpiece is kept at bay so you can't get near enough to see the figures.

The Duomo is an imposing structure with an austere brick and block facade on the outside. Reminds me of the monolithic church in central Bologna in that regard. The existing church dates from 1594, but there are artifacts and a fragment of a stone pillar, from a much older version...on display inside. The interior is a very clean (largely) unadorned...
