Church of the Spirito Santo

The church originally was dedicated to the Holy Annunciation and built by the Servite Friars around the middle of the fourteenth century, together with the adjoining monastery, it was refurbished several times between the sixteenth and the seventeenth century.
The monastery was suppressed at the end of the eighteenth century, while the church was dedicated to the current order and was enriched with works of a certain importance coming from suppressed churches and oratories.
On the plastered side of the church there are two portals of the sixteenth century. The main portal leads into the terminal part where on the wall stands out a wooden choir loft, carved and painted in 1741 by Domenico Valleri.
The interior, with single nave, wooden trusses ceiling and plastered walls preserves valuable paintings by Jacopo di Cione, Santi di Tito, Filippo Lippi.
The church is open only early in the morning.
