Religious buildings

Toscana is rich in churches, parish churches, convents, abbeys, sanctuaries and monasteries of great historic tradition and indubitable artistic interest, which makes the region the destination, not only for tourists, by for the pilgrims of faith, who search for a way of making contact with God in this place rich in spirituality. Even those who do not believe however remain fascinated by the beauty and harmony, which emanates from the sacred buildings at first impact.

Churches, abbeys and sanctuaries in Toscana have always been constructed in divine harmony with that with which they are surrounded. Erected in the green countryside or constructed in the city, the sacred Toscani buildings maintain, from the most magnificent to the most humble, a sombre architecture never flamboyant but elegant even in its simplest form. The cleanness of the external lines often conceals the grand richness of the interior. In fact every sacred building, independent of its position or importance, preserves precious works of art, which have come down to us thanks to the dedication and commitment of the men, and women who have dedicated their life to God’s service.
