Bagno Vignoni était un village où les pèlerins s’arrêtaient pendant leur périple. Celui-ci est aussi connu pour ces bains thermaux utilisés principalement par les romains pendant l’Antiquité. Aujourd’hui, malheureusement, il est impossible de se baigner dans le principal bain thermal, au milieu du village, mais l’eau y est toujours très chaudes. Cependant, il existe un autre bain à Bagno Vignoni, où il est possible de se baigner, pour un certain prix.


Bagno Vignoni was a village where pilgrims stopped during their journey. This one is also known for these thermal baths used mainly by the Romans during antiquity. Today, unfortunately, it is impossible to swim in the main thermal bath, in the middle of the village, but the water is still very hot. However, there is another bath in Bagno Vignoni, where it is possible to swim for a certain price.

C’est dans ce village qu’est né le Pape Pie II, qui lui a d’ailleurs donné le nom de Pienza vers 1459, en hommage à son propre prénom. Bernardo Rossellino l’aida à rebâtir la ville mais malheureusement, sa mort en 1464 met un terme aux opérations. Seul un palais pontifical, une cathédrale et une place furent bâtis.


It was in this village that Pope Pius II was born, which gave him the name of Pienza around 1459, as a tribute to his own name. Bernardo Rossellino helped him rebuild the city but unfortunately his death in 1464 put an end to the operations. Only a pontifical palace, a cathedral and a square were built.
