Chianciano Terme is located on a ridge between the wild Val d'Orcia – declared a human patrimony by UNESCO – and the fertile Val di Chiana. A number of small and large villages have grown up around this centre, perfect for exploring along small roads and full of discoveries at every stop.

These two valleys boast four cathedrals which reach up toward the heavens, symbols of the rapport of the local populations with God.

Here are a few brief indications for admiring these important monuments, for pausing from daily life and appreciating these four celebrations of faith.
