Unlike most churches this one is entered by a side door rather than through the front. The church was built in the 13th century and remains pretty much the same as it was then. Fairly simple but with lots of artwork.

Sant Augustus is a small stroll away. That makes it less crowdy. Some fine fresco's and paintings. Not as spectectular as the mainchurch but more tranquille.

We went to this church because they had an English mass on Sunday morning. But the interior of the church and the frescoes were a very pleasant surprise. Well worth your time

Ladies, be sure to wear clothes that cover your thighs and shoulders, or they'll give you thin sheets to wrap yourself in before you go in this beautiful church. Be sure to get the self-directed audio tour to hear the history of the church and its frescoes.

This is an old church that was partly destroyed and rebuilt. The outcome is a beautiful building with a unique style which combines old features with more modern, but still appropriate, ones. There is an enchanting cloister/garden at the back where you can have a stroll or sit on a bench to take in the beauty of the place. The... More

This Church is one of the nicest I have been to in all Italy. It is small and quaint but still amazing. the atmosphere and architecture give you that true mid evil feel from the time the church was built back in 1280. The paintings on the inside done by the famous artist Benozzo Gozzoli are astounding. They tell the... More

A serene place that breaks the hustle of a day visit to San Gimignano. One can admire the architecture and the paintings that embellish the church.

An imposing 13th century building, the second most important in San Gimignano. The large austere interior is dominated by the seventeen-panel fresco on ‘The Life of St Augustine’ around the high altar. There are also a number of other lovely frescoes in the church. In the Cappella di San Bartolo there is a magnificent altar and the remains of the... More
