A few hundred meters away stands the Medicean fortress designed by SSangallo and recently restored to its original splendor along with keep. The monastery over the centuries has been enlarged but remains intact the large porch. outside. Inside is of great interest is the refectory of the friars with frescoed walls. Together with the convent there is the basilica which was built at the same time. Here you can find among other works including a della Robbia terracotta Dossal an exquisitely crafted wooden pulpit of 500 and a wooden statue of the Madonna attributed to Duccio di boninsegna given its location the place became the meeting point of you TTI i poggibonsesi on the occasion of the feast of the Patron Saint, San Lucchese, the April 28 date in which the body of the Saint is carried in procession. However in order to fully appreciate the mystique that emanates from this place better to arrange the visit at a later date.
La storia di San Lucchese ci ricorda gli insegnamenti di San Francesco che forse più di ogni altro santo ha interpretato il vangelo cioè l'insegnamento di Cristo, Lucchese era laico e sposato ma intra... more »The history of San Lucchese reminds us of the teachings of St. Francis that perhaps more than any other Saint played the Gospel that is the teaching of Christ, Lucchese was secular and married but undertook the journey of Holiness so as to enter it first with his wife in the third Franciscan order so made the count Orlando which gave St. Francis mount La Verna where he could take refuge and draw close to God so much that there received the stigmata on the feast of the exaltation of the cross. San Lucchese is a prime example of Holiness among normal men IE lay and consecrated, as if to say that not all of us can become saints leading a normal life as long as it is a straight line. Returning to the sanctuary it must be said that it is also placed in the hills with a beautiful view.

And just from this one has the best view of the complex, also because of the arches on the left side of the Church and that lead us to visit the little monastery, which is extremely close. Come here though, from a tourist point of view we are a bit disappointed, because maybe we expected more: the façade is simple, preceded only by a small porch, which continues on the left side, the one that runs along the small cemetery; from here you have a nice view on the fortifications of Poggio Imperiale, which is just opposite. The Interior of the Church is also very simple, a single nave; There are also some interesting data from the valuable altar frontal Robbiesco on the left nave and frescoes, both along the nave in the left transept (where there are the remains of San Lucchese). It is precisely the transept area, together with the apse, in the Church's Gothic origin. From the aisle right leads to a small cloister, the lunettes contain frescoes of the XVII century. We couldn't visit nothing else of the monastery (which I understand has not, however, more elements to highlight).
