Church of San Biagio

Piazza Garibaldi, 2, 56040 Montecatini Val di Cecina, Pisa, Toscana, Italia

The Church

The church of San Biagio is set in the characteristic old centre of Montecatini Val di Cecina, a village marked by copper mines, which had been representing local economy since the Etruscan age, till the early 20th century, when production activities were closed down.
It was built in the 14th century and then radically transformed in the 19th. In the 16th century, a portal was opened on the right side wall (and not the main elevation) of the religious building, looking onto the main square. The bell tower, built in brickwork on a corner of the façade, dates from the mid-15th century.
The internal space is marked into three naves and hosts a few important works of art.
