Val d’Orcia, an ancient medieval valley

In Val d’Orcia, time seems to stand still, the old villages, parish churches and abbeys have never changed and are there today like they were in the past, watching over the valley. The Val d’Orcia is as deeply attached to its traditions as to its ancient remains. It boasts countless traditional products and its small producers work hard to maintain their productive systems unchanged: their excellent wines, the Pecorino Cheese of Pienza and other specialities maintain the flavours of the past.
