"Roman Catholic Radda in Chianti, Tuscany Italy The church was first mentioned in 1260. Damage was so extensive in World War II that only past reports and inventories provided information for restoration. The last reordering took place in 1969 to reorient the main altar in accord with the Second Vatican Council changes. The rectory is inside the church on the left; the Chapel of the Society of St. Gregory the Great and St. Mary of Graces is adjacent on the right of the facade." (Link 1.)
