Santa Maria Maddalena Church : Michelin's recommendations
Harmoniously blending into the landscape, the church is a fine example of first Romanesque style. Construction began soon after 1205 for the Camaldolese order of Tuscany; an inscription on a rubble-stone of the façade cites other works completed in 1335. Although the whole church was built with limestone and volcanic rock, each of the materials had a different use: small stones in the lower parts and rows of rubble-stones in the upper sections and façade.
