  • 1148, Pope Eugenius III was built. Inside are numerous works of art by the Siena School, consists of 2 parts of the altar of the main church and Saint Fina. The altar of Saint Fina is following in the 15th century was in the front seems to have been renovated in the 19th century. Ceiling painting of the "last judgement" was impressive.

  • It is a church to visit a lot of history to visit you can rent a register like telephone for explanation. On the square there is the Tower many markets but its worth it, the view is magnificent 360 degree to take pictures. In one day you can visit everything, you will discover beautiful pottery shops, good small nice restaurant too cheap. You know that it is a fortified city. Its worth parking charge outside.

  • The buildings are impressive from the outside with great colors. The square is swarming with tourists and the line to get into the church is mega long. It moves fast though, but not very impressive from the inside. Impossible Challenge: try to avoid being in any of the tourists photos taken.
  • Beautiful and quaint town known for its towers. Walking through transports you back in time to a slower, quieter and friendlier time. Lots of shops and restaurants around each nook. High enough to overlook the Chianti region.
  • Impressive before Sunset, great reddish color on the yellow stones and bricks
  • The square is very nice but very touristic unfortunately.
  • Take a walk in the narrow streets of San Gimignano end enjoy its amazing medieval buildings. San Gimignano historical center is a UNESCO world heritage site.
