UNESCO World Heritage Site and protagonist of the most famous landscapes of Tuscany and Italy, the Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta is a small jewel framed between two rows of cypresses. One of the most important attractions to see in San Quirico d’Orcia, and absolutely one of the most iconic places in the Val d’Orcia and in all of Tuscany. The Vitaleta chapel is an authentic symbol of the Val d’Orcia and of the Tuscan imaginary: a white church with cypresses around it that rises on a hill surrounded by wheat, an authentic pearl of beauty.
Always a destination for photographers and incurable romantics, this small church is located on a dirt road that leads from San Quirico d’Orcia to Pienza in the direction of Montepulciano. Along the SP146 road, we always remember from San Quirico to Pienza towards Montepulciano) you will find on the right a small sign that will take you onto a dirt road.
