Duomo di San Gimignano Reviews
Don’t be fooled by the plain Romanesque exterior. The interior is positively covered in frescoes of early Renaissance artwork. For only 4€ you can spend as much time as you like admiring them. more »
This is a lovely church with some well preserved frescoes covering stories from the new and old testaments. Judgement Day may give you nightmares! more »
The state of the ancient frescos is pretty good, giving a good insight into Italian middle age interpretation of Bible stories.
Traveling from Siena to Florence we decided to stop off at San Gimignano. This is a Medieval town that was around since the 1300's and was wiped out by the black plague. It was later, 500 years or so, re-inhabited. The view and the history is amazing.
