  • After piazza della Cisterna is the Collegiata di San Gimignano, in piazza Duomo. The Cathedral is truly beautiful, inside there are many ancient, medieval frescoes. There is also the chapel of Santa Fina, with frescoes dedicated to her. The entrance is free of charge, 4 euro and 2 euros for the reduced. The price includes the autoguider, which will give you information about the Cathedral, climb the stairs that will take you to the Cathedral, you will find a small square where you can buy tickets and take autoguider. It's a beautiful monument, I recommend it.

  • I was surprised that couldn't have come too soon when it came a few years ago, San Gimignano had gelato in the Piazza della Cisterna in the summer, no memory is, this into the collegiate church, and had such a wonderful frescoes. Wall frescoes by the Sienese School of the 14th-century "old testament" in the New Testament Bible story very friendly and beautiful. Blue of the ceiling still clean. I thought it is very worth it. But Fina frescoes by Ghirlandaio Santa Fina legend further lies behind many who rose Tower on its beauty was also surprised. It is a church you want to observe.
