  • The Church was built as a result of the miracle of our Lady of tears on 26 February 1490. The statue of the Virgin Mary, attributed to Michele da Firenze, was then placed in the hallway of the hospital dedicated to St Christopher. According to the Chronicles of the time the statue would those tears in front of a young, coming back from Loreto, knelt to pray to the Virgin. You can still see the fresco of the Annunciation, an early work by Spinello Aretino, dating from shortly after the 1370.

  • The Church is little known, but historically and artistically valuable. We entered because looking for a mass, with inter alia big surprise for the friendliness and hospitality of the parish priest. Inside valuable paintings. One of 1500. In a provincial town would be a jewel of architecture and art, obviously in the rich Arezzo pay pledge.

  • Very nice Temple. Is located on a quiet street leading to the entrance of the picturesque alley. Last visit in Arezzo Temple was open during siesta. When the picture is Vasarian "descent from the cross" approach, the light will automatically turn on. On the façade side of the entrance is an ancient fresco "Annunciation" spinello Aretino (now under glass-otsvechivat' became difficult to consider).

  • Honestly this Church does not match the others present in Arezzo but worth a visit. She's in position offset from the classic tourist trail but, coming from the Church of San Domenico, one encounters on the way leading to the House of Vasari. The façade is naked with stone bricks. The bezel painted with the Annunciation by Spinello Aretino placed at the side entrance. The Interior, although quite typical New York is completely stripped down at the top, while the aisles are embellished with several chapels with frescoes, paintings and sculptures. Very nice marble altar inside which there are three uniforms niches for statues.
