The cathedral, dedicated to Santa Matia Assunta, is built as a part of the city’s reconstruction, based on an idea of the Pope Pius II Picolommini in 1462. It is a rather simple building, made in a Gothic style, designed by Bernardo Rosellino, with an...More

Wonderful little church in the middle of Pienza's old town, picturesque with the rolling Tuscan hills behind it. Simple exterior mirrors the simple interior, but not bland. Also a good shelter from the rain :)

A must see when you are in Pienza. The city was well planned and the Duomo adds to its charm. The Duomo is in the main square and is the centerpiece of the city.

This church was a tranquil, restrained building. There was a large crypt which, because of the local topography, was largely above ground. This contained some ancient sheet music from around the time of Guido D'Arezzo and some 400-year-old portraits of ecclesiastical figures with amazingly modern...More
