  • Parrocchia Di S. Egidio Abate is a simple working church in the center of town, and is an easy way to see an early church while visiting Montalcino.

  • In a very nice elevated position overlooking the main Square
  • It was built in 1325, replacing a previous church demolished to raise the fortress. The facade, in Romanesque style, is very simple, in stone. The interior, completely renovated during the seventeenth century, is very simple, articulated in a single nave and with stone pillars with large arches supported on the walls, alternating with beams. On the main altar we can see a tabernacle of gilded wood, by Alessandro Casolani, while on the right wall of the presbytery there is a 14th century fresco depicting the Virgin with the child and saints. The visit is free.
