  • One of the few examples of Gothic architecture in this location. Externally it has a façade preceded by a nice porch; internally it has a single nave with beamed ceiling. At the entrance there is a large glazed terracotta by Giovanni delle Robbia ("Madonna with child and saints"), as well as some paintings by Bartolo di Fredi, siennese painter that in this church has left his most important works. You should also visit the cloister, the lunettes which retrace the life of St. Francis, painted by Ferruccio Nicodemas.

  • Sure is a beautiful basilica, with a simple Interior and furnishings where you can breathe a lot of spirituality. Very nice the altar and noteworthy, among other works of art, the magnificent polychrome terracotta of Giovanni della Robbia placed to the left of the entrance of the basilica.

The Church of San Camaldo, subsequently Lucchese, became the seat of the Friars Minor from 1235. The convent of San Lucchese preserves interesting and also very rare works of art such as the raising of belief on the sacristy, Memmo di Filippuccio, artist active in the first decade of the 14th century in nearby San Gimignano, painted to its beginning seventeen figures of Saints. $p 01 Lucchese was a wealthy, converted by Saint Francis: in fact, Lucchese, after hearing it, he decided to donate his goods to the poor and living of fraternal charity with his wife Bonadonna. His life was marked by the rigour of the Franciscan order so much that when he died, in 1250, the folks at Poggibonsi it already in the odor of sanctity. And a few years after his death began the construction of the basilica and the monastery who would take his name: San Lucchese.
