Artistic Architectural Sights
Montaione cites the Church of San Ragolo, dating back to the 13th century this wonderfully built church holds a personable slice of history in showcasing the extremely valuable painting of Madonna with Child. Italy is known deeply for its religiously inspired art and architectural tradition, and the Holy Mount, or the Jerusalem of Tuscany as it’s known, encapsulates the tradition as much as any other, captivating tourists for many years now. Why not visit the city of Florence during your holidays in Montaione for a grander appeal, the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore impedes the skyline with its size and grandeur, offering a unique architectural appeal while giving an ostentatious insight into Italian culture. Perhaps if you’re finding the Italian sun a little too much to bear, Florence offers numerous outdoor pools in which to cool off, the perfect way to enjoy the sun without drying out!
