  • Is a beautiful Romanesque church above Careggi in the Woods and with ample spaces, very pleasant. I have witnessed very suggestive christenings and Baptisms

  • On the slopes of Monte MORELLO this little church can be an interesting stop. From the square in front part dirt road that reaches Ceppeto while continuing we arrive at the village of Cercina then rejoins the Via Bolognese.

  • Beautiful place. Beautiful building in an autumn sun. What a pity it was closed.

  • Awesome place in the countryside of the Florentine hills. Place of reflection to which I am bound by old family memories.
