The patron saint of Poppi is interred here. The church is in an excellent location at the end of the main street in the village offering excellent views outside of the surrounding valley. It has a beautifil decorated window, numerous significant paintings.
There are 3 churches located close to each other in the village, each worth a visit,

We loved our visit here. It was not our destination as we just came across it in the old town. It is an 11th century abbey and downstairs it contains the actual remains of the saint and other pious leaders. There are some lovely works of art and the abbey is in beautiful condition and welcoming. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.

Such a wonderfully quiet and peaceful place. With no other visitors it is possible simply to sit and enjoy the calming, quiet background music.

We visited here as part of a day's wandering around this beautiful town. This little church was a delight to visit on a quiet drizzly day in Poppi, we had it to ourselves.

The Vallombrosan church was cause for widespread superstition. In fact all the city and perhaps the entire valley knows that part of the church and the monastery and cloister hearsay women can not linger for the night. Supervening ghosts with vallombrosian cassocks to disturb the woman who dares to spend the night under strictly relevant to the friars Order.
Many testimonies of people still living like former Librarian of Poppi author of a temporary exhibition in the late '80s and many more to medium high culture people.
Even in December 1994 there was another phenomenon in which there was a rush of people to see the bells move dramatically but without sounding as the clapper remained motionless; said it was the Spirit of Tommaso Crudeli he did it to show the happiness of the just ended conference where the speaker was the most highly renowned Roberto Gervaso in the birthday anniversary of the poet tortured for heresy.

This little chapel is attached to the Monastery Abbey of San Fedele. There is a closed off inner section where the monks come to pray but the public can visit and attend Mass in the outer section. This church was on the road up to our villa (Villa Padrone) and, as Catholics, we found it convenient to attend Sunday Mass here. There is also a small cemetery nearby.
