  • In the territory of Barberino Val d ' Elsa stands the ancient Pieve di Sant'Appiano (the Saint to whom we owe, according to legend, the evangelization of the Val d'Elsa. The first written mention dates back to the 9th century, although few traces remain of the original complex. The Church, with three naves; the two aisles are separated from the Central, on the one hand by columns, the other by pillars, joined to the other by arches. There are still some works of Philip Filippelli (a "Saint Peter Martyr" and a "St. Anthony Abbot and Saint Matthew the Evangelist), but above all a" martyrdom of Saint Sebastian "by Bernardo Rosselli. In the back of the Church, there are still some testimonies (four columns) of the ancient baptistery. Unfortunately it is not always accessible and suffers from the lack of proper maintenance, which is a shame because the short visit is interesting and shows one of the many little treasures on our territory.
