La Badia di S. Flora e Lucilla Reviews
정면은 매우 평범해 보이는 성당 내부도 그렇게 보이는데 이탈리아어로 된 내부 가이드엔 제단과 정문 한켠의 아치형 그림이 1500년대 화가 바사리의 작품이라고 한다. more »The front is a very plain-looking inside the Cathedral, so the altar front door the internal guide in Italian Yen looks of the picture is called the work of the painter the Vasari vaulted 1500.

Beautiful with an important story to tell that leaves you open-mouthed. While we were visiting we met a very nice lady who explained every detail of all the works in the Church. The presbytery is dominated by the monumental complex of the altar built by Giorgio Vasari for his family's Chapel in the Church of Santa Maria in 1563 and here in 1865. A wonderful Baroque masterpiece is well faux dome painted on canvas and placed above the main altar. Absolutely worth visiting in the hope to meet Mrs right well of knowledge. Thanks again.
Chiesa non molto appariscente esternamente,ma che conserva al suo interno grandi tesori. Pregevoli le sculture e gli ornamenti in marmo e gesso. Alle spalle dell'altare campeggia un magnifico dipinto ... more »Church not very flashy externally, but inside are great treasures. Valuable sculptures and ornaments in marble and plaster. Behind the altar stands a magnificent painting by Vasari. A precious wooden crucifix by Baccio da Montelupo. Amazing finally false dome painted by Andrea Pozzo who with an optical effect astonishing by the illusion even more careful eye, the presence of a real dome. Is there on the floor a metal button indicating the exact point from which to admire the illusionistic masterpiece. Many others are the treasures preserved in this beautiful church that here it would take too long to describe fully. Not to be missed!
Interesting Church, apparently of minor importance compared to other of Central Arezzo but enclosing some works worthy of being admired. Also during this period (Christmas 2017) there is a beautiful mechanical crib further embellished with a background with images in sync with the times of the day and classical music playing in the background. Not to be missed.
From the outside you can't even imagine the beauty that hides
Of particular value to the right of the altar crucifix.
The Church is far too sketchy from the outside and one can hardly imagine the treasures it holds inside. Obviously what I miss more to the eye once you enter you the suontuoso altar and chancel opera of the famous Vasari. Mind you the back of the altar that houses a stupendous chorus above which there is a magnificent organ. Various valuable paintings are then distributed in the aisles.
From the outside it may not seem like much, but inside you'll find a historical and artistic gem!
