Tourism in Baucina

The Church of the College of Maria

Baucina rises on splendid hills surrounded by very beautiful lands rich of cultivations of olive-trees, vines and almonds.It was founded in the XVII century and its history starts from powerful Florentine family of Migliaccio. King Philip IV of Spain (1605-1665) granted don Mariano Migliaccio the title of prince of Baucina on 26 October 1626.

In the village there is a beautiful Church of the College of Maria where it is kept, inside a precious urn, Santa Fortunata's relics, martyr and patron saint of the little town.

The church, built in 1737, has on its front a beautiful portal decorated with small geometric shapes and it ends into architectonic curvilinear ornament.

The Church of the College of Maria

Entrance is supported by false columns, four on each side, rilief sculptured and theysupport in scenography, second series of temple. Here a splendid and large window opens: it is encircled by friezes and accompanied by drawings which evoke solemn atmospheres. On the left of the window a fine clock is placed.

The temple ends into rilief decorated pediment. It is defined on sides by two imposing bell-towers and there is a refined and simple Cross on the upper part.

The inside, also very beautiful, is enriched by altars artistically worked and by a splendid canvas representing Madonna del Lume, made by unknown author.

The statues of Addolorata (Our Lady of Sorrows) and San Rocco have a good visual effect and they are of very good workmanship. The latter is made by sculptor Filippo Quattrocchi.
