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

Not the highlight of our trip but this church has remained the same for a thousand year. Its not as touristic but worth the detour. Its free.

Nice laid out church with gorgeous frescos throughout. If you get the discounted admission for both the church and the museum you get a free audio tour which is very informative

We visited the convent in April this year. It was very interesting and a lovely peaceful place. Definitely worth a visit.

You have to wander to find this one. An old convent, it is well worth the short walk to the edge of the town, away from the main touristic attractions. Beautiful inside, with an interesting history

From our recent visit to San Gimignano, it appears that most people do not go beyond the central square. But you should go to the St Augustine church. The frescoes are precious .

Difficult to get to from the hotel, but worth the trip the walk down the hill. The altar is underground and carved out of rock.

If for no other reason, walking through the beautiful 13th century streets of San Gimignano to the far carner of the medieval town--and far away from the buses that disgorge their thousands of tourists--is reason enough to visit this ancient church and Augustinian convento. The church itself is austere and beautiful. It contains dazzling frescoes by Gozzoli depicting the life... More
