It was originated by the Augustinian monks in 1271, but the present church dates back to the 14th and 15th century and has been recently completely restored for having been seriously damaged during the 2nd world war.
The interior has a basilica plan with 3 aisles, divided by 6 bays and keeps numerous remarkable works of art, among which you can notice a Madonna della consolazione by Naldini (1592); a Elemosina di San Tommaso da Villanova by Lorenzo Lippi (1660); a Sacra Conversazione by Empoli; a Sacra Famiglia by Pietro Pezzati and some others.
In the Capitolo room you can see a fresco portraying the Pietà by one of Agnolo Gaddi's assistants (end of the 14th century). In the adjacent monastery is the Oratory of San Michele, which is interesting for the considerable traces of the 14th century frescoes.
Closed on Monday morning
