Chiesa dei Santissimi Vincenzo e Anastasio

This rectangular-shaped church was built in the 13th century and is one of the few churches in Semproniano and most of the Maremma to not have undergone extensive renovations.

In fact, the church has only been significantly resorted once – in 1579, when the very Gothic features and an inscription were added to the exterior.

The interior of the church is divided into four naves with semicircular arches and covered trusses.

Once again, you’ll be overwhelmed by all the 13th century decorative elements that have survived. Keep an eye out for the original medieval panels with rosettes and the two gorgeous stone fonts.

Unfortunately, any art from the time of the original church has been lost or nicked by local museums, but there is the beautiful 17th century painting, ‘La Madonna del Rosario’, by Francesco Vanni.
