  • The Abbey of Santa Maria in Montepiano was built at the beginning of the 11th century and consecrated in 1105, instead of a Hermitage previously founded by blessed Peter the hermit (died 1098 and buried beneath the high altar of the Church). In 1138 passed to monastic practices Vallombrosan monks who, in addition, forestry and aid to pilgrims and wayfarers, care of religious assistance for the people of the place. During the early Middle Ages was a thriving Center of studies, generously assisted by the counts Alberti. It's all in stone, a nave with two side chapels built in later periods. It is decorated on the outside with hanging arches, that the façade is supported by small columns. Very nice website, with semicircular Romanesque arch and a large lintel in a single block of stone. The Interior, with beamed ceiling frescoes of the ' 200, of uncertain attribution; According to some of the works were painted by Cimabue and Giotto, but is more likely to be an artist's Prato Byzantine works.
