We visited the church and the art was amazing with painting and sculpture that were hundreds of years old. The duomo itself was beautiful.

Pretty impressive cathedral for a town the size of Montepulciano. Not overly decorated but very elegant. There is currently work restoring the main altar being done. The scaffolding went up in late May / early June. The rest of the church is still open.
