  • I was in pistoia for work, I was in the cloister of the convent where she had been installed a photo exhibition. Externally, from the large square you will immediately notice the façade of the Church, but you don't really have the size from the outside, just entered I was open mouthed at seeing the grandeur and beauty of the Church has a single nave and cruciform struck me immediately as I approach the altar, the altar you can admire the frescoes that rappresnetano the life of Saint Francis.

  • I repeat the same things last time. Beautiful like 5 months ago. I confirm the feelings expressed in the past. My church in Pistoia.

  • Beautiful church that alone justifies a visit to Pistoia. Recent renovations have made legible many of the frescoes. Giotto, but with strong influences of the planes. The Church then is of great, simple, suggestion, preserves silence and shyness. As befits a Franciscan church.

  • Church annexed convent of the same name, is a nice treat for tourists. The nave is unique and very wide both in height and width and, upon entering, the eye is immediately drawn to the frescoes covering the walls behind the high altar and two side chapels to it. Don't miss out on this visit.

  • Classic example of Franciscan architecture whose construction began in 1289. To report the frescoes with stories of Saints Anthony and Ludovico di Giovanni di Bartolomeo Cristiani and histories of san Donnino di Bonaccorso di Cino.
