Beautiful setting with wonderful views. The light coming in is such a beautiful touch to the interior of this Duomo. The one this you can't take your eyes off is the ceiling and the arches. Look up!

The duomo of Pienza is special because one of the popes has been born in Pienza and the duomo and the town around it is small but very beautiful. It is listed by Unesco, and there are a number of photographers walking around the wall...More

Interesting to walk through the Duomo to see where it is in danger of buckling due to age, location on the cliff, etc. It seems like certain areas have truly been more permanently bandaided to give the Chapel a longer life! Its setting...with the vista...More
