San Quirico d'Orcia (Tuscany)

San Quirico d'Orcia is a comune in the Province of Siena in the Italian region Tuscany, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) southeast of Florence. It is named in honor of Saint Quiricus and is located on the Via Francigena. The frazione of Vignoni houses a castle, a residence of the Salimbeni in the 12th century. It includes a top-less tower and a Romanesque church, once housing a crufix by Giambologna, now in the Museum of Montalcino. Annexed is also the (rebuilt) 15th century Palazzo degli Amerighi, where a plot was set against the Spanish who menaced Siena in 1558–59.
