  • 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.
