Chapel of the Madonna - Vitaleta, Tuscany, Italy

The Cappella della Madonna di Vitaleta (Chapel of the Madonna) is a landmark in Tuscany. It is famous, as it once was the home of a Renaissance statue of the Madonna that was sculpted by the artist Andrea della Robbia. The chapel is on private land and is reachable by walking on a long dirt road thanks to the owners allowing access to the chapel. The actual origin of the chapel is unknown and it is thought to have been constructed during the Renaissance period. Its first mention was in a document written in 1590. The chapel is quite small and we were able to photograph it from a distance from the highway before gaining access to the hill it was built on. The clouds were amazing this evening and I took this just as they were beginning to put on a show for us.
