This is a church located just within the city walls of San Gimignano. It lies within a quiet square on the outskirts of the city. It is situated outside the hustle and bustle of the heart of this heavily visited city. It is free entry into the church, which you will not find at the Duomo in the city's center.... More

Away from the center of town, the Church of Saint Augustine was a mandatory stop for pilgrims in the Middle Ages. It is beautifully decorated and sits on its own, uncrowded piazza.

We walked around the area during our tour and popped into the church. I went through to the gardens by the side door and it was the most peaceful place I've been too and ever visited. My wife said exactly the same. It's an amazingly peaceful and relaxing area to just witness. Hard to describe but highly recommended as a... More

Located at the far end of town away from the crowds we found this church to be peaceful. We enjoyed the fresco behind the altar.

We got there quite early one morning, after a lovely walk around the city walls (another highlight) and were the only people in there, for the duration of our visit. Many of the frescoes in the main body of the church are very interesting, but it is Gozzoli's fresco cycle of the life of St Augustine in the apsidal chapel... More

The simple brick façade has an ornamented rose window and three tall windows on the long side where the entrance is. The interior has a single nave with a wooden ceiling and two side chapels. The apse in the... More

If you love churches, exploring the variety in Italy is for you! This one is small and humble, especially compared to others in Italy in general and Tuscany in particular. But it is lovely and off the beaten path.

I am not a big fan of churches but I recognise this one has a special beauty! It is pretty easy to take a quick look inside and feel the joy. Had the pleasure to talk with the choir ladies since they ended their weekly training as we were there and all of them are very passionate about their town,... More

If churches are interesting to you, don't miss the Church of Sant'Agostino. History is interesting and area in general is a must see. Don't miss.

Unlike most churches this one is entered by a side door rather than through the front. The church was built in the 13th century and remains pretty much the same as it was then. Fairly simple but with lots of artwork.
