This simple medieval church is the central attraction in the walled town of Monteriggioni. We were fortunate enough to be there on a Sunday morning when the locals come out in their traditional regalia to give a lovely display.

Wonderfully decorated church located in the centre of the piazza in Monteriggioni. No charge to enter either and although simple is a nice place to sit in the tranquility.

Monteriggione's finest church.. goes back to the Middle Ages, days of knights, kings, castles and crusades...magnificent walled city has a festival every July to reminisce of medieval times. Photographers dream with great views in every direction.
