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

Be sure to walk behind the alter to view the life of St. Augustine in fresco form. I would suggest reading up on his life prior to viewing the amazing art work. Don't miss the nativity scene in the back of the church that was discovered in the last three years when some work was being done. You can exit... More

The Church of Saint Agostino is situated a short walk away from the busy piazzas and main streets of San Gimignano and it is well worth taking the time to go and see it. It is an oasis of tranquillity in this busy small town. The Piazza in which it is located is beautiful with its open space surrounded by... More

Looked like a very beautiful church--though a bit of a walk. We were there for about 5 minutes when we were told that it was closing for a few hours. The priest was very apologetic, which was heartening, but be sure to check times before starting your walk!

The availability of open hours was excellent. English speaking services on Sundays at 11 am. Great historical site, rich in colors and culture.

This church is an absolute jewel, packed full of exquisite artistic treasures. It's easily overshadowed by its more celebrated neighbour, the cathedral. Those on the tourist circuit would do well to spend a little extra time to hunt it out, hidden away in one of the less busy piazzas. Inside lie magnificent riches for art lovers. A whole fresco cycle... More

This church, near one of the town parking, has some jewel that deserve a visit. Obviously it is an Italian church ... don't look for a well organized visit with frills! It is a 1200 romanic/gothic church decoraded mainly in the renaissance. Its semplicity, its light make it very nice to visit (expecially if the outside temperature is not confortable).... More

Outside temperatures were reaching 40*C (102*F), inside was cool with a wonderful sense of space; wonderful architecture; wonderful paintings and Murals and also maintained a real sense of the spiritual (as it might). Very well maintained; well worth a visit, however, it closes for lunch from c12.30 to 15.00.
