  • this place definitely deserves a visit. It is a good protected Roman building, cosy atmosphere inside. It is fun to get there by your bike from Pisa, just follow the road to Marina di Pisa, and in the...  more »
  • Easily visible from the road between Pisa and San Piero a Grado. It seems to me that dates back to 1200-1300, but has had several renovations. Inside are preserved (bad unfortunately) the remains of frescoes. Very nice at night, as well lit.

  • You can't – even from non-religious-don't visit a symbol like this one, which gave rise to an epic of 2000 years. Lovely place, shame about the closure of the nearby railroad.

  • 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

  • 10 the basilica but 4--to space out. "lawn" with dog excrement and two dogs without a muzzle or leash that roam free. no ban or control (like anywhere in pisa ...). with the baby had come away. in any country in the world the space around an old church would be held differently. ...

  • A few kilometers from Pisa, amidst a lush green meadow stands this basilica, with an interior open quaint as it also preserves the remains buried in a former Church. Large lawn outside to stroll outdoors.

  • Beautiful church about 10 km from Pisa, a must see. Church with two apses, tradition says that nearby landed S.Pietro.Il campanile hub was destroyed by the Germans in retreat in World War II.
