- This convent was founded by the Benedictines in the middle of the 13th century. The Carmelites in the 17th century dedicated the church to one of their saints which then assumed that name. The most famous artists of the period such as Perugino, Botticelli and Domenice Ghirlandaio all produced work here that has since left this collection to be preserved in museums all over the world. Inside the church, moving away from the sacristy and crossing other subterranean rooms, we arrive at the famous Crucifixion of the Pilgrim (1493-96), a fresco that decorated the former chapter hall.
