  • A lovely little church offering peace and tranquillity. A nice building with a bright interior and well maintained inside.

  • Interesting church, although there is not much special about it. It is said to be medieval, although when we entered, we rather felt in a much more recent building. Was it rebuilt? I don't really...

  • Obviously excluding the importance related to worship, from an architectural and aesthetic point of view it does not arouse particular interest. Dedicated to the patron of Manciano. Its bell tower stands out among the houses of the village.
  • The foundation of the church is not known but it is thought that it can date back to the fourteenth or fifteenth century (the historical archive of Manciano was destroyed in 1902 with the fire of the Cassero). However, that baroque building was completely modified in 1932 in neoclassical style with the complete reconstruction of the facade, the internal vault, the altar, etc. The result is a building that is certainly appreciable and elegant but somewhat in tune with the medieval aspect of the village.
