  • This basilica is out of the touristic route, surrounded by a nice garden and is worth the visit. Built during the Roman Empire, there are some ruins inside.  more »

  • We were attracted by the external structure and stopped finding that Romanesque architecture is beautiful to analyze why here and discover various elements of reuse by previous structures that are involved in masonry. Interesting also the ceramic tiles that adorn the part just below the roof I discovered not be original as to preserve them from vandli were brought to the Museum of Pisa. The winter is really great because it contains the remains of a pre-existing basilica, which according to legend was founded to commemorate St. Peter just landed in Italy and directed in Rome and a cycle of frescoes on the life of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, as well as a series of portraits of Popes. Besides that mark a wooden statue of the Madonna, recently made, which I thought was really nice.

  • Right at the point where stands the Basilica of San Piero a Grado, near Pisa, disembarked in the year 44 St. Peter during his journey to Rome; here a small church was built, replaced by the basilica. We must consider that the Apostle Peter landed in this area because from here it passed the River Arno, which was moved fifteen hundred meters North in 1606 by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinando I de ' Medici. The current church was built in the 11th century and later modified in the 13th. The Interior has three naves, majestic, enriched with frescoes, including portraits of Popes ranging from San Pietro until Pope John XVII (1003 year). Externally does not present the façade, replaced by an apse: no known reasons in the year in which this has happened, but now you come from two side doors. The Church ending with three apses: the belfry, which was thirty-seven meters tall, was shot down by the Germans in 1944 and never rebuilt.

  • Wonderful Romanesque basilica, where you can admire the remains of a Byzantine basilica and Domus ecclesia founded by Saint Peter. Remarkable also the medieval fresco cycle with the story of the apostle. not to be missed
