  • It is a typical example of late Gothic building with a single nave, with tall arched Windows on either side; contains many works in sculpture and painting that leave you literally speechless. Among the many that is the result of the best artists of the 13th-14th-15th century stands above the high altar, a masterpiece by Piero del Pollaiolo, Antonio's brother.

  • Definitely can see the brick church with Gothic Windows is a mix between Gothic and Romanesque and looks on the outside rather simple. Inside you can admire the works of art are real by Lorenzetti, Piero del Pollaiolo, Benozzo Gozzoli and other greats of the era. Beautiful tiled floor of Andrea della Robbia. Don't need to be experts because such beauty enchants

  • Nice church! Quite serene with a nice Piazza
  • A really breathtaking architecture, however we went there around 1 pm and there were just too many tourists.
  • Not the most amazing
  • Romantic place
  • After seeing the towers and plazas of San Gimignano can be reached by a short walk to piazza Sant'Agostino. The amazement at the beauty of simplicity of this little neighborhood is huge. A beautiful square, in front of a very beautiful church, in typical Tuscan style, with wood-beamed roof and simple structure and without columns. Marble altars, frescoes still excellently maintained and is shiny. Through a door leads to the cloister and in the back of the Church, impressive. I highly recommend a visit.
