  • ...UM of the frescoes will. That however necessarily must look at, also behind the altar are inaccessible. Worth seeing is also the internal Kreugang. Enjoy the silence (at least we had the luck to be alone).

  • Built of brick between 1280 and 1298, this church hesitates between the Gothic and Romanesque style. Simple façade. A single nave composes it. One Deputy a cloister in the second half of the 15th century, to which we add a renaissance decoration. In particular see the frescoes of Gozzoli (15th) and the chapel of San Barolo to the tiles in majolica.

  • First visit at our arrival in the morning. What a pleasure to evolve in this church, lulled by the enchanting sound of a harp in the adjacent cloister. Contrast to the tumult of the Center. A real gem with ease but with plenty of beautiful, well-preserved frescoes. Our favorite to in Gimignano.
