The Parish of Saint Andreino is a sacred building at the quarries of Rapolano. The church is a Romanesque travertine structure with a semi-circular apse and a portal with the archivolt and the frame, which is engraved with geometrical themes and putti. In the apse, on a stone, it is engraved the date AD MCI, maybe referable to the year of the foundation. After years of abandonment it has been recently restored. Originally, it was dedicated to Saint Andrea, then it has assumed the name of Saint Andreino to distinguish it from the homonymous church in the centre, which was demolished in 1849 because it was likely to fall. On the only altar there was, until the second half of the XIX century, fragmentary polyptych by Paolo di Giovanni Fei. With the Madonna with Christ Child and the Saints John the Baptist, Andrea, Francesco and the prophet Daniele, now in the National Picture Gallery of Siena.
