Hidden inside the church is a marvel.  I bet most people don't even know it exists.  You see a modest door that indicates the entrance into "the library".  There is also an admission charge, so you say to yourself: "sure, I'm going to pay a few bucks just to look at a library, right-on, these people saw me coming. . .".  And you walk right by.  

bullet

I did walk right by, but a fellow traveler told me to go back.  I discovered a treasure.  Here's the boring story: the place is called Libreria Piccolimini, built in 1495 to house paperwork and books of Pope Pius II.  Here is the exciting part: the frescoes inside (by Pinturicchio) are perfectly (100%) preserved, in vibrant colors and detail.  You can almost smell the paint and mortar.  The walls have not been covered by candle smoke or any other destructive agent, time has stood completely still for over 500 years.  

bullet

Bonus #1: in the center of the room the famous Three Graces.  But wait, there's more, bonus #2: the lower part of the walls are covered with beautiful musical manuscripts.

bullet

Chances are: you visited Siena, you walked inside the church, but you missed the library.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  These pictures show you what you missed.

bulletThe posters and prints you order here are NOT the mass-produced, flimsy paper "dime-a-dozen" variety: every panoramic poster and print is printed "on demand" just for you, on photographic paper.  This ensures extreme high quality and a truly "limited" distribution.  
bullet You may chose GLOSSY or MATTE surface paper.  If you do not specify otherwise, your order will be processed on GLOSSY paper.   
bullet Escape: decorate your office or cubicle with a panoramic poster (or print) of a dream place.  
bulletGift idea for your sweetheart (or treat yourself...):  A unique panoramic poster!  
bulletThe Panoramic Posters and Panoramic Prints make exceptional gifts.  Please order well in advance of major Holidays.
bullet These posters are custom printed professionally and look absolutely stunning.  Exactly the same image presented on the Web site is printed (minus the copyright overlay).  Panoramic pictures present a view that is impossible to capture with "normal" cameras.  The very large panoramas present a view that is larger than the human normal field of view.  Because of technical reasons (due to panoramic processing and exceptionally large field of view), when examined under magnification, certain elements may appear distorted or imperfect.   Any such imperfections are not visible under normal viewing and will not interfere with the enjoinment of the beautiful panorama.
