Chapel of Our Lady of Vitaleta

The tiny and much-photographed Chapel of Our Lady of Vitaleta (Cappella della Madonna di Vitaleta) sits on top of a hill in the Val d’Orcia area, along the road that goes from San Quirico d’Orcia to Pienza.

Although the Chapel is mentioned in a 16th century document, its current appearance is reportedly a result of renovation work carried out in the late 19th century under Architect Giuseppe Partini.
