Work on this Basilica started in the 13th century by the Serviti Fathers who came from Montesenario and was still uncompleted when it was consecrated in 1533. The church square is an authentic lookout over the medieval city.It is rich with works of art amongst which the Madonna and Child known as del Bordone painted in 1261 by Coppo di Marcovaldo. It is one of the most beautiful paintings of the second half of the 13th century but also has a peculiar history. Coppo di Marcovaldo fought in the battle of Montaperti with the Florentine army and was taken prisoner by the Sienese victors. He did not have any money to pay for his ransom but told his jailors I can paint and being ready to do anything to regain his freedom he realized an authentic masterpiece.From Via dei Servi, passing through via San Girolamo we return to via Pantaneto and turning immediately to the left into via Cane e Gatto we reach the goldsmiths´ lane, an intact corner of the old Siena.
