S.Quirico d'Orcia

It was an ancient parish preceded by an eighth-century baptistery. The current building was built towards the end of the twelfth century or the beginning of the next century; the oldest part seems to be that corresponding to the facade and in particular to the portal. The final part was completely altered with the removal of the apse originally in 1653 to build the choir.
the Facade
The church has a Latin cross plan with a single nave and apse chapels. Of the three portals, the most significant is the main portal of the Lombard style, consisting of a porch stood out slightly arched (architecture) to all sixth, decorated and supported by two pairs of columns on each side, sandstone, knotted at the center and resting on lions. On top of the colum
