The romanuesque Parish church of Borgo San Lorenzo

The S. Lorenzo Parish Church, built in 941, is the biggest Romanesque construction in Mugello with the bell tower, set on the semicircular apse and built in brick in the shape of a semi dodecagon. The magnificence of the works of art held within the church is testimony of its past importance. Among these a Madonna, attributed to Giotto and masterpieces by the Chini Family.  Tel. +39 055 8459295

The SS.Crocifisso dei Miracoli Orator, was built in the 18th century to hold a wooden Crucifix,  left here in the 15th century by some German pilgrims who were fleeing from the plague. Tel.+39 055 8459088

The San Francesco Church holds an extensive nave in Gothic style, the remains of 14th century frescos, and a chapel, all made from bits of pebbles from the river.

  • The Madonna dei Tre Fiumi Sanctuary was built in 1578. According to the legend, some women were praying in front of the tabernacle, where today we find the Sanctuary, when the face of the Blessed Virgin materialized and began to cry.
