  Duomo Santa Maria Assunta
by kathymof

Beautiful church full of light. Its altar area is at the edge of the escarpment the town is built on. There has been a significant amount of settling and as you walk toward the alter you can actually tell that you are walking downhill. This is how much the church has settled. Luckily there is no imminent danger of it collapsing and falling a few hundred feet.

Address: at main plaza in old town Pienza

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
