The Cathedral of San Lorenzo

Dedicated to the Patron of the city, the cathedral rose in the place of the former church of Santa Maria Assunta. The new construction, in Gothic style, was begun in 1294 by the architect and sculptor Sozzo Rustichini, from Siena, but the works endured many interruptions and many restorations changed the church. On the facade can be seen the Gothic sculptures of the first constructive phase, while in the bell tower, raised on the left flank only in 1402, there are fragments of the original Gothic decoration of the church. Inside, the cathedral has a Latin cross shaped plan; the current aspect is due to the restorations of the 16th and the 19th century.
