San Quirico d’Orcia

San Quirico d’Orcia is a delightful small Tuscan village that we absolutely recommend you visit. An ideal point to visit Pienza, Bagno Vignoni and Montalcino, San Quirico d ‘Orcia is a delightful village located in the heart of the Val d’Orcia.
An important stop along the Via Francigena, this village still shows its medieval structure, surrounded by the ancient city walls. From here you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Val d’Orcia and Mount Amiata.
Here you will be spoiled for choice of monuments to visit: you can start by visiting the splendid Horti Leonini, a perfect example of the classic Italian garden. Here in the center of the green labyrinth stands the beautiful statue of Cosimo III de ‘Medici; continuing along the characteristic streets of the town, you can reach the remains of the Torre del Cassero, an ancient tower almost 40 meters high which was destroyed during the Second World War. Strolling along the streets of the village you will find numerous shops selling typical products and crafts and excellent restaurants.

You can continue your visit of the village by heading towards the Collegiate Church of San Quirico and Giulitta, perhaps tasting in the meantime a good glass of wine accompanied by a good platter of cold cuts and cheeses.
Next to the Collegiate is also Palazzo Chigi whose splendid eighteenth-century rooms now house the town hall.
But the visit of San Quirico does not end here! Scattered throughout its countryside, there is also the Vitaleta Chapel, a small chapel located on the top of a pretty hill, surrounded by a dream landscape, a true iconic symbol of Tuscany.
