  • Square and Cathedral of the city of Prato, cute and simple Church outside it. The square instead and big enough, the Business Center for local people.

  • One of the oldest churches in Lawn built in white and green marble. To underline the pulpit built by Donatello and frescoes by Filippino Lippi. Worth a visit

  • Yummy local restaurant with full menu and Tuscan specialties. Unfortunately near the square is easy to reach. The operator friendly and knows how to recommend. Unfortunately (and fortunately) is small, but it is very noisy.
