  • A simple and interesting, a small cloister, but kept up beautifully. A religious kind that we did visit the Church, despite being closed. A short but good experience.

  • a very nice place suitable for people related to religion. You can visit the monastery from within. Place provided by hotel and restaurant within walking distance. Starting point of two roads to leisurely walk among the campaigns and groves.

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.
