This small church is beautiful with incredible frescos. It is nearby to a small square with quaint restaurants. This is a quieter area of San Gimignano as the main square is very busy with tourists. It is worth the walk to visit this church.
Consecrated in 1298, this church is on a square away from the town center. The interior was decorated by Vanvitelli The choir is covered in Gozzoli's frescos depicting the Life of St Augustine. Above the main altar is The Coronation of the Virgin by Pollaiuolo.
The church was built in the Romanesque style with some Gothic elements, during the 13th century. Its interior is like an art gallery, with so many fascinating works on display that you will need a couple of hours to explore them in all their glory...More
This church is not the main church, but IMHO it's more interesting than the cathedral! The paintings are very interesting and show, on a much smaller scale than Uffizi, how local artists matured from the one-dimensional medieval work to the more sophisticated Renaissance stuff.
Compared to some of the other churches around Italy, this one is so relaxed and the queues are not a problem. AND, it is one of the best inside! Every surface is covered in vibrant, colourful frescos - even the roof! Don't miss it.
