Worth the walk

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

When you walk into the church it takes your breath away. It is breathtaking and amazing to find such artwork for the times. It is definitely worth your time to go and even sit and take it all in.

This church is well worth a visit for the quality and variety of its medieval frescoes. Put 50c in the box in the chapel behind the altar to light up the Gozzoli frescoes. The church is situated in a peaceful, and surprisingly large square, close to the Porta San Matteo.

With your entrance fee you get a free handset explaining each panel of the wall paintings. Beautiful and sobering

From the outside, you wouldn't expect what you find inside. It's worth exploring. Definitely worth visiting during hours when there is less of a crowd - to enjoy a more quiet atmosphere. While we were there, the visitors created a bit of a buzz. But that was due in part to one of the groups being a crowd of kids.

We spent a week in San Gimignano and wandered into this church on day 4 as my husband was searching for the sculpture court. Sadly a funeral service was just finishing so we waited outside and looked in the cloisters and soaked up the peaceful surroundings in this quiet piazza. The interior has some fine artwork and a sense of... More
