But I loved it! Some of the best frescoes I've seen. And the old guys hanging out together outside are precious.

The Collegiata is a wonderful piece of late Romanesque architecture. It's construction spanned many decades and different churches have been built where the Duomo is located know.

Inside you can find a great fresco in the controfacciata depicting a doomsday judgement. Do not miss the right part, that with the doomed ones. Try to guess the topic of each fresco on the walls! You will events related to the Old and the New Testament!

If you like frescoes in their original church setting then this is your thing. Although not as artistically equisite as some frescoes found in Italian renaissance churches this is certainly very complete.

When you visit San Giminiano you really have to get inside the Duomo and take a good look at the walls:
you will see one of the most noticeable examples of mural painting in the history of art.

Great 14th century art. The outside is very simple with nice steps in front of it and inside is very rich. The art work seems not as grand as some other places but seems to connect to everyday life.
