The Church of San Giovanni Battista is located in Campagnatico, a village with a breath-taking view of the Maremma.
This small church is situated atop the ruins of the fortress’s defense systems, even using one of its towers as a bell tower. The building dates to the 13th century, it’s Romanesque style showing influences of Pisan Gothic.
The façade is topped with a pointed arch, rose window and pediment with blind arches. Inside, there’s just a single nave, with a raised presbytery, trussed ceiling and chapels surrounded by wide Gothic arches.
Amongst the important artworks conserved here, it’s worth noting the 13th-century painting by Guido di Graziano of the Madonna and Child, influenced by Duccio Buoninsegna’s style. There are also a wooden ciborium with painted windows, dating to the 1500s, and some frescoes by Cristoforo di Bindoccio depicting episodes from the Life of the Virgin.
