A very ornate, little gothic church right on the edge of the Arno river originally constructed in the 13th century and then dismantled and raised to a higher point on the river bank in the 19th century. Worth looking over the spectacular and intricate exterior...More

On the river bank you can see this little marble church. It is full with carvings, just you can not go inside. But an excellent photo opportunity.

Passed by this tiny church, set on the bank of the River Arno to the right of the Solferino Bridge as we walked from the train station to the Leaning Tower. It is very beautiful and the carvings on the walls amazing so much like...More

Nice church to look at from the outside. Do not be sad if you don't come inside, it is not much to see.

Such a special building saved from the river. Often special exhibits inside but worth seeing just the outside for its charm and detail

Walking from the train station toward the Leaning Tower of Pisa, before crossing the bridge across the river, many will find it almost impossible not to stop, walk down a just bit to see this beautiful little church close up. Part fairy tale castle, part...More

This is a nice stop before visiting the famous Leaning Tower. Midway between the train station and the tower, it belongs to the unique Pisan architectural style and shares some similarities with the tower. The interior is relatively austere.
