The history of the church and its convent Ostello- Chiostro delle Monache Volterra Inside the Church of San Girolamo of the XV century and in its chapels on the side of the Portico, there are considerable works, among which the terracotta of Giovanni Della Robbia, on which one can read ‘Questa tavola a fatto fare Michelangelo di Niccolajo Ceregli. MCCCCC’. There exists also another beautiful plate of Robbia and the welcoming Annunciation of Benvenuto Di Giovanni in the adjacent Convent.
