CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI: NEIGHBOOURHOOD - Ancient Village of Fonterutoli

dintorni Castellina in Chianti Siena Il borgo ha origini antichissime e la zona in cui si trova, sulla strada che da Castellina in Chianti porta a Siena, era probabilmente sede di una colonia etrusco-romana. Furono signori di questi luoghi i nobili di Staggia,
che poi passarono i loro possedimenti ai monaci vallombrosiani della Badia di Passignano. Non rimane molto delle fortificazioni medievali in quanto nuovi edifici, soprattutto nell'epoca Granducale, furono eretti sopra le antiche strutture. All'interno del borgo, vicino alla Pieve di San Martino, vi Ë una serie di edifici, composti da una fattoria e dalla villa Mazzei dalle fattezze splendide, che nonostante i vari rifacimenti, sembra risalire al XII secolo.

CHURCHES IN CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI AND NEARBY

chiese del chianti castellina in chianti

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - CHIESA DEL S.S SALVATORE

This 16 C church, which was rebuilt and extended after the Second World War, is in neo-Romanesque style. It contains an important fresco of the enthroned Madonna attributed to Bicci di Lorenzo (1373-1452), and a wooden Renaissance statue of St. Barnabas, the former patron saint of the town. In the right nave, there is a wooden urn with gold decorations containing the remains of St. Faustus, the present patron saint, donated by the Ugolini family in the 18 C. The left nave contains a 17 C Annunciation of the Tuscan school. To the left of the choir is a 15 C Renaissance ciborium, and behind the altar a 17 C Tuscan crucifix. In the transept stands a modern 40-pipe organ that replaced the ancient one in 1965. The three bells date back to 1797.

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - CHIESA DI S. MARTINO A CISPIANO
There are other Romanesque churches located in the area, including those of San Cispiano and San Quirico. The former, with its single nave and a small apse, is - like Romanesque churches in the Chianti region - built of typical ivory-coloured Albarese stone. The latter has a single nave, and a bell tower added later on one side. No architectural decorations remain.

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - PIEVE DI S. CRISTINA A LILLIANO.
La chiesa presenta una struttura ad aula unica coperta a tetto.
Della sua origine romanica conserva la bella facciata a filaretto di alberese, unica parte originale dell'edificio che per il resto risale ad interventi di rifacimento. L'interno conserva dipinti neomedievali del senese Aldo Marzi (polittico neogotico con Sant'Elisabetta d'Ungheria e Sant'Andrea, 1943; Madonna del Rosario, 1950) e del fiorentino Aldo Ongaro (tavola neoquattrocentesca con Santa Cristina e storie della sua vita, 1960).
Alla sua sinistra si eleva la chiesa della Compagnia, da cui proviene una Madonna del Rosario tra i Santi Domenico e Francesco di scuola senese del XVII secolo, attualmente in deposito presso la Pinacoteca Nazionale di Siena.

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - CHIESA DI S. MICHELE A RENCINE
At the southern part of the Castellina territories and at the farthest end of the Chianti region, facing the fortress of Monteriggioni, the ruins of an immense almost completely destroyed castle can be seen. The church of St. Michael (Canonica di San Michele), which has one nave and no apse, is in a good state of preservation. An interesting and unique feature is a decorative motif on the façade, with small arches supported by thin semi-columns with small odd-toed capitals, reminiscence of the nearby Abbey of San Salvatore at Badia a Isola. The decoration line is interrupted in the middle due to past destruction and subsequent restoration.

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - PIEVE DI S. AGNESE
The parish church of Sant’Agnese, on the main road from Castellina in Chianti to Poggibonsi, belongs to the diocese of Siena. The church has three naves and three apses. It was destroyed during the Second World War and has been entirely rebuilt according to the original layout and dimensions. The bell tower is imposing.

CASTELLINA IN CHIANTI - PIEVE DI S. LEONINO IN CONIO
San Leonino in Conio is a very old parish church that once had control of Castellina in Chianti. Now all that remains is the old Romanesque church, with its very interesting interior and beautiful apse. Adjacent to the church are some old buildings that are now used as the priest’s living quarters. There is also a small cloistered courtyard with an ancient well in the centre.
