  • This church located in the main street of the town is teeming with the 12th-century Romanesque, which currently is in very good condition. The façade is very simple and no special things to note flanked on one side by a beautiful square bell tower, while inside consists of a single nave covered by trusses where you can admire the tomb of novelist Giovanni Boccaccio and an impressive crucifix of type triumphans, with wide-open eyes in his triumph over death. Also visiting the nearby sacred art museum you can see the cloister of the fourteenth century.

  • Visited in late December around sunset than from a fantastic color to the outer walls of the original church of the 12th century. Very basic its interior with a beautiful wooden ceiling, an altar with a crucifix in the Church also is a bas-relief and the tomb of the poet Boccaccio and the urn of santa Giulia. From the Church it is possible to access the Romanesque cloister and the cell where he lived in seclusion the santa Giulia.

  • Beautiful.
  • In Certaldo Via Boccaccio is the Church of Saints James and Philip, built in the 13th century: the Interior is vast and solemn and at the center of the Church is what should be the tomb of Boccaccio, although it is certainly not containing the mortal remains of large s prescriber Guide. The wall left precious fresco by Memmo di Filippuccio "Madonna and child enthroned with Saints James and Peter." Toward the altar lie the Cenotaph of Giovanni Boccaccio and above it the bust of the poet. In the chancel are two beautiful shrines of the della Robbia school, the tomb of blessed Giulia Della Robbia's workshop and a shovel. Nice marble baptismal font of 500. The rectory next door, once the site of the convent, is now used as a Museum of sacred art
