The church of the Madonna della Piaggia is a sacred building among San Gimignanello and Serre di Rapolano. It was founded in 1407 by the “grancere” of Serre and, at the time of the rector of the Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala Paolo di Paolo Serfucci, who wanted to build a church dedicated to Saint Maria Maddalena, not only in the granary but also in the country. The church was built to protect and enclose an ancient tabernacle with a fourteenth-century-fresco which represents the Madonna with Christ Child, attributable to Lippo Vanni, enclosed in a cornice in stucco of the XVIII century. Since 1808 the church belonged to the Company of the Mercy and here it is kept the ancient bell of 1498.
