Hilltop towns of the Val d’Orcia V: San Quirico d’Orcia

San quirico

Many peoples do not know of San Quirico d'Orcia when they come to the lands of Montalcino and Sant'Angelo in Colle for the wine and food tourism. It has only 2.500 residents, more or less, but is a nice town for the shopping and also "la spesa" the food shopping. You will find many boutiques and clothes shops there. Also there is a good "barbiere" for cutting the hair and trimming the beard.
