Pin It

San Quirico d’Orcia is on the Via Francigena, one of the main roads through Europe in the Middle Ages. It still has the same medieval street plan it did when it became part of Siena midway though the 13th Century. As well as stopping to admire the architecture and take note of the local churches, as you must do in every Tuscan town, the highlights of this one are the Horti Leonini gardens, the Misericordia and the Collegiata dei Santi Quirico e Giulitta.
