Cortona features many piazzas, palazzos, churches and public buildings of the Romanesque style, some with Gothic features overlaid on top. At the crest of a hill overlooking the valley we chanced upon the 15th century primitive Church of San Domenico just outside the city walls,...More

Lovely small church in a square, in side you see some very old fresco's, quite small but worth a visit.

This is a beautiful, simple church not far from the cathedral (duomo) in Arezzo. It is well worth searching out among the alleys and byways. The church stands on the edge of a peaceful square, and features 13th and 14th century artwork.

The exterior is in the austere medieval style. When you enter, the atmosphere is the same: serene, simple, peaceful, largely undecorated. The Cimabue crucifix is one of his masterpieces. Absolutely worth visiting this small church for the Cimabue.

Definitely worth a visit. Off the beaten track in Arezzo, but well worth the wander down there. Simplicity at it's best. You might even enjoy sitting in the piazza outside this beautiful church: properly classic piazza.

It was our first stop on a walking tour - well worth visiting. Just by the escalator from the car park so easy to get to.

We only found this as we were on a guided walk. The outside looks good, however the inside needs restoration. The bit that makes this church different is the crucifix, however you need to pay 1 Euro to shine a light on the cross.

A small church which was being prepared for a wedding when we were there. Some fragments of important frescoes are on the walls and the crucifix by Cimabue is beautiful.

This church is in a piazza with benches and shade trees, good for taking a break. The church is small and usually deserted. There are some crumbling frescoes on the walls, but the star is a magnificent crucifix by Cimabue. Pay the euro to hear...More
