This historical village is located on the "Via Francigena", a road which in ancient times served as the route for pilgrims traveling from France to Rome. "All roads lead to Rome", but this one was especially well traveled. Rather naturally, the village of San Quirico d'Orcia is home to some of Tuscany's most ancient churches, with construction beginning as early as the 8th century.
The village sits on a hill with cypress tress beckoning the way to the heart of the area. These trees are perhaps the most photographed and painted trees in all the world. The people of San Quirico are very friendly and add their local charm to all who are fortunate enough to visit this treasure of a Tuscan village.
