Chapel of Our Lady of Loreto

Overview

The Oratory of the Loretino is a small, cross-vaulted room whose interior is decorated with frescoes depicting episodes from the life of Christ, the work of an anonymous late Gothic master who lived in the first half of the 15th century. A 14th-century wrought-iron gate, created by the Sienese Count di Lello, divides the hall from the presbytery space. The altar is crowned by a wooden tabernacle, made in 1529 by woodworker Vincenzo di Bastiano and carver Luca, to hold the venerated Crucifix of Castelvecchio. The painted compartments of the tabernacle are the work of Francesco di Agnolo Lanfranchi, better known as lo Spillo, brother of the famous Andrea del Sarto.
