Pienza is the most artistically pleasing town of Val D’Orcia. It lyes on top of a beautiful hill, whose back overlooks beautifully land plots cultivated with aesthetic care and great patience. The whole valley behind Pienza is full of country roads you can travel encountering solitary trees and carefully plowed land.
The town chard is due to Pope Pius II, a native of the city, who had completely rebuilt the town over the old village, entrusting the project to the architect Bernardo Rossellino: the construction lasted about four years and create an harmonious town with forms typically fifteenth century now still untouched.
