The Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie has dominated the village of Anghiari since the 17th century with its simple but elegant façade. The religious building is known to all as the Propositura or Madonna del Fosso because it was built along the route of the ancient moat outside the Medieval city walls.

The interior, a single nave decorated with aedicules and columns in classical style, hosts a precious glazed terracotta altarpiece from the workshop of Andrea della Robbia depicting the Madonna delle Grazie.

Other noteworthy artworks are two canvas dating back to the 15th century by the Florentine Giovanni Antonio Sogliani, the Last Supper and the Washing of the Feet, and the painting with the Deposition from the Cross (1515) by a young Puligo, mentioned by Giorgio Vasari as his best work of art.
