Pieve delle Sante Flora e Lucilla a Santa Fiora
Piazza Arcipretura 1,, 58037 Santa Fiora GR, Italia
In the spectacular land surrounding the extinct volcano of Monte Amiata, Santa Fiora, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is rooted among the mountains and hills.
The gem of Grosseto is of medieval origin, and for a long time it was under the dominion of the powerful and noble Aldobrandeschi family, and then of the Sforza, leaving behind an important and fascinating historical legacy immersed in the stunning landscape. Not only that, it's a treasure trove of art and places of worship with a thousand-years old history, where you'll find churhces such as theone dedicated to the patron saints of the town, Flora and Lucilla.
The Pieve delle Sante Flora e Lucilla, with evidence dating back to 1142, has architectural elements in the Gothic and Renaissance styles. On the gabled façade, there's the coat of arms of the historic lords of Santa Fiora, the Aldobrandeschi.
