In the beginning had a difficulty in finding this famous church.. It would be really helpful to everyone to know that this church can be reached from Agroturismo Cretaiole. The scenery was really nice.

We walked from Pienza on well-marked footpaths, but you can also drive there. We were not able to enter the chapel; and there were a lot of people wandering around on a hot August day. It can also be seen from a distance from the...More

It's about 15 minutes maybe from Pienza by car. It's off the SR2 is all I remember. Look for the dirt road lined with cypress trees. That windy road takes you right to the Chapel. Michela
