Built in the 12th and 13th centuries, the interior of the duomo was remodelled in the 16th century and features a handsome coffered ceiling. The Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows , on the left as you enter from Piazza San Giovanni, has two sculptures by Andrea della Robbia and a small fresco of the Procession of the Magi by Benozzo Gozzoli.

In front of the duomo , a 13th-century baptistry features a small marble font (1502) by Andrea Sansovino.
