Santa Fiora

Santa Fiora

Distance from Guinza: about 15 km / 25 m. by car

Of great interest is the historic center of Santa Fiora, which has a square at its peak where the Town Hall overlooks, as well as what remains of the medieval fortifications.

A mining museum has recently been set up, which although not as extensive and documented as that of Abbadia, marks a significant evocation of the mining era experienced intensely in the territory of Santa Fiora and Castell'azzara (mercury mines of Siele and Morone).

From the square, along Via Carolina, you reach the Church of the Pieve (of Saints Flora and Lucilla, patron saint of the town), where the work of art is found, perhaps the most important in the entire Amiata area.

This is the collection of valuable ceramics by Andrea della Robbia (1435-1525), authentic gems of Tuscan art, both for technical execution, of which the perfect conservation over the centuries is luminous proof, and for artistic sensitivity.

Among them we point out the Madonna della Cintola, Baptism and the Last Supper, as well as a triptych with the Coronation in the center and Saints Francis and Jerome in the side panels.
