CELLERE - monuments & MUSEUMS
 
Chiesa della Madonna delle Grazie
Just down the road leading to Pianiano and under the town, this country church dates back to 1300.
 

  Cellere: Sant'Egidio  

Chiesa di Sant'Egidio


  This is the most important monument in town, sitting in a valley immediately under the old town centre (on the road to Pianiano). Commissioned by Cardinal Alessandro Farnese from Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane, it offers a perfect example of renaissance architecture. Built in 1512-20, it has a Greek cross plan supporting the large dome and many well preserved frescoes inside.



Pianano

4 km south of town (well signposted), this is a mediaeval hamlet with a circular plan built on an outcrop of rock. An autonomous commune until 1729, there's an old castle and the Chiesa di San Sigismondo. In the 1800s it was used as a bolthole for the infamous bandit Tiburzi.
In September, the locals organise a mediaeval dinner as part of the "Cellere: Tra Natura e Tradizione" event.
