  • Beautiful and mystery place, especially "Antica torrenta" 😉 behind church. And almost no tourist here
  • Liminaio, Renaissance church 1485, built around a painting of Madonna and Child. The effigy of the Virgin, initially located in a wash basin for tanning skins, is said, that in the Passover of 1484 began to work miracles. Hence the idea of building a church around us. The direction of the work was entrusted to the Architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini, on behalf of Luca Signorelli on mandate of the Art of Calzolari. Sugestivo Place.
