Welcome to Sansepolcro
This hidden gem is a town that truly deserves that description. Dating from the year 1000, Sansepolcro (called 'Borgo' by locals) reached its current size in the 15th century and was walled in the 16th century. Its historic centre is littered with palazzi and churches squirrelling away Renaissance works of art or bejewelled with exquisite terracotta Andrea della Robbia medallions. Spend a day wandering from dimly lit church to church, following in the footsteps of Sansepolcro's greatest son, Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca.
