Since I saw this church and Montepulciano's surroundings as filming spots in the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun", I had dreamed of driving in Tuscany to visit those charming towns. I could have fulfilled 100% my dream if I had known beforehand about the classical music concert that was being offered by Palazzo Ricci at Tempio di San Bagio the... More

Absolutely spectacular! On the edge of town so very easy to park. Great for a picnic or highly recommend the restaurant directly opposite

Beautiful and well maintained inside and outside. One of the places where you have to take a turn from the road and must see. Really great experience.

The Renaissance's architecture "rediscovers" the central plan. It rediscovers, of course, for churches. For baptisteries, for example, this plan had never failed, because it suited to the function of allowing the people's gathering around a point of interest (the baptismal font) that is central. But in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries this form is applied by the Renaissance architects also... More

If you want to see somewhere serene, steeped in the feel of the Late Renaissance and a gem of classical architecture, visit San Biagio. There are so many places inside to look at; the beautiful floor and Dome.The wonderful area behind the altar. It was designed by Antonio da Sangallo in the 15th century.Feast your eyes also on the paintings;... More

San Biagio is a Greek-cross plan, which means the arms of the church are all the same length, the design Bramante intended for St. Peter's. Interesting to walk around it to see how the architect balanced the outside.

Very steep walk from city Centre, partly on gravel but well worth a look. Well preserved and surrounded by grass - nice for a picnic. No public facilities I could see but places to eat nearby. Free entry.
