Capella di Vitaleta is located on SS146 west of Pienza and close to San Quirico D’Orcia. The light is best later in the day, and even after twilight, beautiful images can be made. Nearby, the Abbey of Sant’Antimo, south of Montalcino, is another area I return to often. The stone walls and floors echo the beautiful voices of the monks as they sing their prayers in Gregorian chant.
