Nowadays it is a beautiful venue for civil and religious weddings in Tuscany in the heart of the Crete Senesi, one of the most stunning Tuscan areas.
The construction works began during the 15th century with Pope Pius II as its advocated: born in Pienza, the Pope wanted to transform his natal town in an “Ideal City” in line with Renaissance, humanist standards. Besides being architecturally balanced and aesthetically pleasing, the town was also conceived with the intent of conveying an ideal lifestyle and government model, in a town capable of satisfying the needs of a pacific and working population.
