Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Santa Maria della Pieve is a church in Arezzo, Tuscany, central Italy.HistoryThe church is documented since as early as 1008, and, during the communal period of Arezzo, it was the stronghold of the city's struggle against its bishops. After the latter built the nearby Cathedral and palace, the church, which had been already rebuilt in the 12th century, was further renovated with the façade and the apse, and the interior was remade in Gothic style (13th century).The bell tower, finished in 1330, is in Romanesque style.DescriptionThe church's most striking feature is its façade, with a five-arch lower floor surmounted by three loggias, with the number of columns increasing with the elevation. The columns, and its capitals, are each different from the other (one is a statue). The original façade had no particular features, the current decoration having been added in the 12th century.The central portal has a barrel vault entrance, and a lunette with a bes-relief of the Praying Madonna with Angels. Under her is a frieze with small angels, and the signature by one Marchionne. In the vault are depictions of the Months of the school of Benedetto Antelami. The two side portals, of smaller proportions, have also decorated lunettes: they depict "Christ Baptized by John" on the right and, at the left, a vegetable motif.To visit Pieve di Santa Maria Assunta and get the most from your holiday in Stia, create itinerary details personal to you using our Stia vacation generator.

Igor GerVhodiv Temple is free. Boldly go. The temple more than a thousand years! The rear façade of the temple or the apse opens onto a beautiful sloping area. Due to its topography, the area seems to be greater than it actually is. On the square there are nice cafes under the arcades.show original
