Legend has it that in 1211, when Saint Francis preached in the Carmignano area, he received a piece of land from the parish. At this place outside the city fortifications, his brother Bernhard von Quintavalle [3] built a convent and an oratory . In the following years the town grew and the church was incorporated and converted into a parish church. It houses a painting by Jacopo Pontormo , which is known as the " Visitation " and was painted around 1528.


The DOCG wine Carmignano and the DOC wines Barco Reale di Carmignano and Vin Santo di Carmignano are produced in Carmignano.
