St. Onofrio Oratory Overlooking the town, in a dominant position, the Santa Maria Parish Church has maintained its original Romanesque structure. The massive bell tower was probably part of the castle, as the narrow openings along the sides suggest. In 1975, in the course of a restoration, a noteworthy 16th century cloister was brought to light, including fragments of portals and other parts of the original medieval castle, which are visible today. The parish church holds traces of of frescos from the 14th  century, numerous works from the 16th century Florentine school, a polychrome terracotta base relief by Della Robbi and a painting on a panel attributed to Ghirlandaio.

THE ORATORY OF SAINT ONOFRIO
It is one of the most surprising examples of Italian neoclassicism. Erected in 1796 by the Delle Pozze family, on a design by Giuseppe Del Rosso, it presents a portico with four sandstone columns supporting an elegant pediment with reliefs on the sides of which are two statues of angels. The inside, which presents a light, precious and harmonious series of ornate architectural elements, is made up of sixteen columns with Corinthian capitals that hold a semi-dome. On the high altar, made of Carrara marble, we find a painting on a panel of the Madonna dell'Ospedale, attributed by many to Andrea del Castagno, by others to the school of Giotto. On the left altar we find a painting on canvas with the Immacolata Concezione tra Santi by Lorenzo Lippi. The pavement is covered in highly elegant alternating white and grey square marble tiles.
