  • Unfortunately the Church on the morning of October 10 was closed so I could just stop watching her outside, but I must say it was worth it, well cared for has a truly stunning façade, located in the proximity of the Centre of Pistoia, highly recommended and I hope you are luckier than me so you can see inside.

  • The Church Of St. Paul with 10 to 13 century was several times reconstructed and enlarged in size. You can mark a qualitatively developed Gothic facades with belfry (even hours). The main façade looks intricately and solidly, even elegant. The building is considered an example of the style. Best regards, Oleg
