Cappella Madonna di Vitaleta at sunrise Italy

Amongst the colourful southern Tuscany countryside beside the village of Vitaleta, lies a charming little Chapel of the Madonna di Vitaleta. One of the most photographed churches in Tuscany, this mystical building used to be the home of a Renaissance statue of the Madonna sculpted by the artist, Andrea della Robbia in 1590. Built in the middle of a hill, this spectacular attraction was restored in 1184 by the architect Giuseppe Partini and was recently classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Dotted across this magnificent countryside are many peaceful holiday villas and luxury accommodation to stay in and soak in the undisturbed natural beauty of the area.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
