  • Visited the Chiesa di San Francisco and found it quiet and inviting. It is certainly worthy of a brief stop.

  • Beautiful clock tower.
  • The church of the Madonna di Vitaleta better known as San Francesco, was built on the remains of the convent of San Francesco, the new sanctuary was built between 1867 and 1870. The travertine facade has an oculus above the access door. The interior has a single nave with four side altars. On the main altar there is the Madonna Annunciata attributed to Andrea Della Robbia from the beginning of the 16th century, as well as other important frescoes means that although it is not the most important in the historic center of San Quirico d'Orcia it is worth a visit.
