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.

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.
This lovely church is a great escape from the intense summer sun, once inside there are the most amazing paintings to be seen, don't forget to light a candle as you walk around and take the door to the left where you will find a a peaceful cloister area while looking around Try and find the black owl.

This little church is set in the middle of the town, has lots of picturesque steps leading to the entrance. It was obviously an old old church, but well kept. It was pretty but not ostentatious; a very quiet place in a busy city. Enjoyed the visit.
The church of Sant'Agostino is set on a quiet square and looks very plain from the outside. Inside it has some lovely frescos, the ones set behind the altar can be lit (50c in the machine) and it's worth doing as the colours come alive. The cloister garden was in need of a bit of weeding and a bit unkempt.
The church was so peaceful and full of art and history. My favourite was the collection of Benozzo Gozzoli frescoes behind the altar depicting points in the life of St. Augustine. They really have stood the test of time. The garden in the cloister of the church was very well looked after. a great place for quiet reflection!
Not many people seems to be visiting this church which does not look impressive from theoutside. Inside there are rich and fine decorations. The frescos describing the life of St. Augustino are quite impressive. Do not forget to visit the quiet cloister garden, directly acessible from the church.
I love this side of San Gimignano, particularly this church because this corner is a little bit far from the busy city center, the church inside is nice and big; outside there is a nice square
