Church of St. Lucia and Benedictine Monastery

15th century

The church of St. Lucia was built before the monastery, in the 15th century, while the construction of the monastery complex dates back to 1563-64.
It extends from Porta Maddalena along the perimeter of the town walls and consists of buildings facing a cloister and courtyard, including the boarding school, novitiate, guest quarters, nuns’ cloister, and kitchen garden. Notable paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries are preserved in the choir, accessible from the cloister but not open to the public: a Pietà with St. John and Mary Magdalene and a St. Benedict interceding with the Virgin (school of V. Camuccini, late 18th century); an image of St. Lucy (G. F. Romanelli, mid-18th century).
