The Chapel of Our Lady of Vitaleta is located on a dirty country road, that leads from Pienza to San Quirico d’Orcia. The chapel is a listed UNESCO heritage. Unfortunately it is closed and inaccessible. You can just enjoy it from the outside, immersed in the landscape of which the chapel became the iconic symbol.I was lucky to get there at sunset, in beautiful chilly autumn day. Warm atmosphere. There is a person sitting on the steps, who gives an aura of serenity to the image, almost like a pilgrim stopped on herebt in her long road.
