  • There is an organization in the visits but go there and there is an Indian monk who tells you a bit about the history and basically leave an offer. The most interesting thing that is the fresco would need more in depth. CMQ to visit because it remains a charming place.

  • One of the hallmarks of Tuscan art is the presence (both in Florence and throughout the province) of countless "cenacles", where there is always the presence of those great works that represent the last supper. One of the most active in the late fourteen hundred, it was definitely Domenico Ghirlandaio that left three important evidence: the last supper by Passignano, all saints and San Marco ones (the latter in Florence). The last supper was painted in 1476 by Domenico Passignano with brother David: the result is very interesting and marks a turning point for the technique and the setting, this type of pictorial representations; restorations (the last executed a couple of years ago) I have removed the original beauty, but rather allow a greater enjoyment. Unfortunately the sala del Cenacolo would need some polishing and restoration. For art lovers, Badia a Passignano still represents a significant step.

  • A beautiful village with great visual impact is coming from Sambuca Val di Pesa (more comfortable) that coming down the other side. For me, one of the most characteristic quadrangular apse in Tuscany. Beautiful the Abbey
