the pirates flags collection!
Jul 2019
right in the center of the city, the simple and clean facade of the Church of S. Stefano, welcomes you and gives you the possibility of a quite, silent rest. If you are lucky you may find the door open and have the rare possibility of seeing the unique collection of flags belonging to moresque vessels and taken in battle by the cavaliers of st. Stefano.

Perfect condition

This is another fine example of a beautiful church on this square. The surprise is the bell tower around the rear.

I wasn't sure what I was taking a picture of, at the time, but I'm glad I did. It's gorgeous at sunset and we just happened to walk by at the right time!

A hidden gem, well worth a visit

This church is not always open. I was lucky to visit. The knights fought in the battle of Lepanto against the Ottoman Empire in 1571 and captured a number of Turkish flags, now on display in the church. There are also fine paintings by Bronzino and Vasari.

Splendid building
Sep 2018 • Couples
One of the several splendid buildings at the Knight’s Square was built in the 16th century for the order of Knights of St Stephan, founded vy Cosimo de’Medici. It was designed by Vasari and Fortini but the white marble facade was designed by Cosimo’s son Don Giovanni with the supervision of Alessandro Pieroni. The most impressive detail inside the church is the wooden ceiling with six paintings presenting the ventures of the order.

Has a nice feel about it and lots of long and interesting history. Good naval historical stuff and flags in here. Worth a visit if you’re in Pisa

History buffs will enjoy, but opening times are guesswork
Sep 2017 • Couples
In addition to being a beautiful church, this one drew me for its collection, on the walls, of battle pennants captured from the Turks at the battle of Lepanto in 1571. History buffs will appreciate these, but the staff said there are no set times at which one can count on the church being open. That said, it isn't that much of a walk from the Duomo, so give it a try. Also, the altar has columns of an unusual cranberry red color - presumably to reflect the blood and lives lost in defense of Christendom. Stop by and see if it's open.

The Church of the Knights of St Stephan is a beautiful Renaissance church designed by Giorgio Vasari on orders of Cosimo I Medici. It was closed so we couldn't get inside though the interior must be interesting to see.

Beautiful Church
Sep 2016 • Couples
Everywhere you look in Pisa there are beautiful churches, and this is not an exception. Located on the equally beautiful Knight's square this is easy to find and the exterior is amazing. It didn't appear to be open when we visited which was a shame as I would have liked to have seen inside.
