Remains of the mosaic pavement of the Church of San Fabiano, 11th century

Church of San Fabiano

The church, which is headed by the Bishop's Seminary, is documented since the eleventh century. Between 1932-33 it was restored in neoromanic style, with polygonal brick bell-tower of the early Sixteenth century. The facade, set back on the courtyard, has a portal decorated with an archivolt in white and green marble of Prato. Inside, the floor mosaics of the eleventh-twelfth century have been repositioned, brought to light during the restoration. From the dark background in serpentine and black marble of Pistoia emerge panthers, griffins and sirens composed of light alberese tiles. Behind the high altar there is a polychrome wooden Crucifix of the sixteenth century.
The visit is possible only upon request to the Diocese of Prato.
