Consecrated in 1298, this church is on a square away from the town center. The interior was decorated by Vanvitelli The choir is covered in Gozzoli's frescos depicting the Life of St Augustine. Above the main altar is The Coronation of the Virgin by Pollaiuolo.

In town but a bit far from the central street, a nice and charming church and square to visit and to enjoy.

The church was built in the Romanesque style with some Gothic elements, during the 13th century. Its interior is like an art gallery, with so many fascinating works on display that you will need a couple of hours to explore them in all their glory...More

This church is not the main church, but IMHO it's more interesting than the cathedral! The paintings are very interesting and show, on a much smaller scale than Uffizi, how local artists matured from the one-dimensional medieval work to the more sophisticated Renaissance stuff.

This church when we visited was quiet and it was great walking around and also the cloister area. Interesting artworks and well worth a visit when in San Gimignano

This very old church is well worth seeing. It is full of paintings some of which go back to the fourteenth century. Don’t miss it

Compared to some of the other churches around Italy, this one is so relaxed and the queues are not a problem. AND, it is one of the best inside! Every surface is covered in vibrant, colourful frescos - even the roof! Don't miss it.

Visiting the Church of Sant’Agostino was splendid portion of San Gimignano. It is a smaller Cathedral/ larger Church that is a true Historic Church and not as much of a tourist spot.

and simple cloisters. Lovely frescoes of St Augustine, lifesize on the walls. Must visit! Exterior does not do justice to what you see when inside.
