Founded before 1000 C.E., this church was reconstructed in the 13th Century in Gothic style for the Vallombrosiani family. On entering there is a sober atmosphere which comes from the internal structure with its three naves, broken up into arcades with pointed arches on quadrangular pillars. It was based on the cistercene model from the time of Buontalenti. In the large Chapel, the frescoes contain scenes from Herototus Ordering the Massacre and The Massacre of the Innocents from the end of the 14th Century.
