Church of St. Agostino

The church which stands on the homonymous square, was built by Augustinian monks who arrived in Prato in 1270,  and is characterised by a simple brick facade, dominated by a bell-tower with rectangular floor-plan. The portal of the first half of the fifteenth century, is surmounted by a lunette and has a lintel decorated with the coats of arms of Francesco Datini, of the Town Council and of the Ceppo Nuovo. The works carried out during the fifteenth century transformed the structure from one to three naves separated by cylindrical brick columns and leaf capitals. The three apse chapels date back to the Gothic period. In the eighteenth century eight aedicule altars were placed along the walls of the naves and in 1745 the high altar was finished.
