Small church

We spotted this little place when at our hotel, walked past it while looking round the newer part of Pisa and it is a great looking little place.

A rather weird little church with intricate external carvings. It's difficult to get a good look at the front because of its close proximity to a busy road and nearby streets/buildings.

nice building from outside but inside is just not much happening - not much to say specially that it is just a small building used for exhibitions.

Art installation took up much of the internal space. Lovely little church, directly on the the edge of the Arno. Certainly worth a stop when you are walking along the river or crossing the Ponte Solferino on your way someplace else

This was the first sight I saw in Pisa as I passed it on my way too and from my hotel visiting all the big sights. I spent a lot of photographic time on it. I hope you do.

Really unusual church sitting on a bridge. It was housing an art exhibition, but was worth going in to look around. The style is breathtaking.

For a stroll along the river Arno the Spina is a beautiful sight. Entrance is not normally possible. But you will enjoy the exterior of the building located directly by the river Arno.

The most beautiful feature of this small church is the outside. When we visited there was a small art exposition inside and entrance was free

We were given a tour here by our local guide. So much information and kind of similar to other church around Italy but has their own local cultural touch.
