  • An interesting small church with a remarkable frescoed ceiling. It is said to have been built on the site of the house of the second Pope. It was empty during my visit.

  • This small church goes a little unnoticed, with a beautiful vaulted ceiling frescoed. Nice, with the sun a bit low, the ray of sunshine hitting the stained glass windows and lighting up the altar .. definitely wanted to create a really beautiful effect.
  • The church is dedicated to the second pope of Christianity, it was built in 1480 by Raffaello Maffei, whose tomb is located inside on the left side of the high altar. From the beautiful stone portal, the structure, with a single nave. It has a beautiful portal pictorial and sculptural monuments of the highest quality. The vaulted roof is decorated with frescoes: in the twelve lunettes, stories from the life of Christ by Cosimo Daddi. Extremely beautiful!
