It is worth noting that large amount of photos associated with this cripta are NOT actually from the place, but from other buildings in the Duomo area. Any photos with plenty of statues or intricate windows, etc, are not from the cripta. The place itself...More

The reason I take a point away from this is because it's not actually a crypt. Given the number of popes and powerful people who came from Siena, I figured that the crypt would be a really fascinating and insightful place. Then it turns out...More
