(i) Badia of Sante Flora and Lucilla Church (Church of Saints Flora and Lucilla)

Badia delle Sante Flora e Lucilla: The church has had several phases, starting from the Gothic single nave of 1278 . In 1315 the monastery was rebuilt. It dates back to 1319 the "Cross" painted by Mark di Bonaventura . In 1489 the cloister was built, designed by Giuliano da Majano . Fifteenth is the fresco of St. Lawrence of Bartolomeo della Gatta , dated 1476. The church has been completely transformed to a design by Giorgio Vasari since 1565 . The works lasted until the seventeenth century and in 1650 the bell tower was built. The church has three naves, bays consist of identical size, the central square and rectangular lateral ones. The sanctuary is dominated by the monumental altar built by Giorgio Vasari for the chapel of his family in the church of Santa Maria in 1563 and brought here in 1865. A masterpiece of baroque artifice is the fake dome painted on canvas by Andrea Pozzo in 1702 and placed above the main altar. Inside the church is preserved a ciborium, probably by Benedetto da Majano.
