arcidosso-Chiesa_di_San_Leonardo_Arcidosso_(GR)-Matteo-VinattieriChiesa di San Leonardo

First mentioned in 1188, this church has been renovated several times since then and its current appearance dates between the 16th and 17th century.

What this church lacks on the outside it makes up for with its breathtaking exposed beam roof and mosaic architrave inside.

The Chiesa di San Leonardo is home to some of Arcidosso‘s most precious works of art. At the entrance is a font designed by Pietro Amanti in the 17th century, who also designed the altar that sits to the left.

Francesco Vanni painted the ‘Decollazione del Battista’ painting that adorns the altar in the 16th century, while the painting of San Bartolomeo dates back to the 17th century.
