Just outside the old city walls of Montepulciano sits this lovely 16th-century Renaissance church. It's amazing to see it from a distance in the sunlight. The interior is very impressive as well.

We visited San Biagio while on a long walk around Montepulciano. I'm not a "church person" but this was an exception. Really dramatic and the audio tour is complete and clear. If you're near Montepulciano...it's a must.

Lovely church, beautiful architecture. It does still have services so best to check before you set off. Plenty of free parking. You can stand in the centre of the church and clap your hands, and you get many echoes that cannot be heard by anyone...More

3.50 euros admission fee also gives you the head phone commentary on this pretty little cross shaped temple designed by Antonio da Sangallo. It is situated outside the city walls so there is easy parking. Go about lunch time before any coaches arrive.

I think that Antonio di Sangallo the Elder imagined this Temple as a continuity from Greek classical period to Renaissance

Great church just outside the walled city of Montpulciano to visit an amazing church with the miracle of the Holy Eucharist. Must see church and make sure you stand on the center oval mark and clap your hand once.........then listen,!

Construction on the Renaissance Greek cross architectural style church began in 1518, merely 17 years after Michelangelo unveiled the incredible “David” sculpture. It was designed by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder. The same plan, based on Brunelleschi’s works, was used for the Bramante-Michelangelo design for...More
