Passing buy on a wet Sunday we visited this very small church after reading about the history. I was a bit disappointed that it was no longer consecrated but the outside alone is well worth a visit.

But we only saw the outside. It is open 3 to 6 in the afternoon only so a visit needs to be planned, not random as ours was!

Located along the Arno riverbank, between Lungarno Gambacorti and the Arno it sits by itself. It dates from the early 1200’s and is gothic in style. Worth stopping by for a look at the intricate outside and the relatively spartan interior.

A cute little church which is easy to miss. There is nothing inside worth seeing, but it’s worth a trip across the river to have a look at the exterior. Difficult to photograph due to the road and shade, but very cute nonetheless.

We had a great picture of the Chiesa, the river and the snowy mountains behind. It is a free entrance, it is small but it is worth it visit it.

Visible from a distance on a bank of the Arno, and compelling to visit, this tiny chapel is absolutely beautiful. Not always open but worth seeking out.

Situated by the river, this marble Church is so pretty on the outside with its marbled facade. Inside were originals of 13th century sculptures. A must see!

The church is a very small but fantastically detailed treasure of a building. If you are interested in design and the architecture that past centuries and cultures have passed down to us, then this is a must. It is just one of the many delights...More

We did not research enough about this place, so when we got there we were surprised that it is so small. We were also surprised that we could not get in. I am not sure why it was closed to the public. But it is...More
