Oratorio di San Bernardino information
Nestled in the shadow of the huge Gothic church of San Francesco is this 15th-century oratory, which is dedicated to St Bernardino and decorated with Mannerist frescoes by Il Sodoma, Beccafumi and Pacchia. Upstairs, the small Museo Diocesano di Arte Sacra has some lovely paintings, including a Madonna del Latte (Nursing Madonna, c 1340) by Ambrogio Lorenzetti.
Note that admission to the oratory is included in the OPA SI Pass.
