Overview

Highlights

  • See The Museum of Sacred Art with its paintings, sculptures, textiles and more, all from the Collegiate and nearby churches and convents

Description

There's nothing in Tuscany that's quite as enchanting as the Duomo of San Gimignano, also called the Collegiata di San Gimignano. Well, except the Vernaccia wine and the taralli, perhaps. This Romanesque-Gothic cathedral comes to life with an audio guide. Explore, gasp and admire, and then head to adjoining Museum of Sacred Art. See original 13th-century frescoes and marvel at art from the Collegiate and the area's churches and convents.

The frescoes inside the Duomo of San Gimignano are as bright and vivid as they were in the 13th century - perhaps because there's been such little light inside over years. Having survived bombings in World War II, they were brought out from under their dusty shields in 1999, and featured along with the Duomo in the movie "Tea with Mussolini".

Tour this beautiful building and see the fabulous frescoes by Sienese master Bartolo di Fredi, depicting stories of the Old Testament. Play a game, if you like, of spotting famous scenes, from the Creation of the World, to Adam in the Garden of Eden, to the creation of Eve and the eating of the forbidden fruit.

Next up, head on into The Museum of Sacred Art of San Gimignano, spread across two fascinating floors in the dormitory of Chaplains. Your audio guide will lead the way through the paintings on wood and canvas, and explain some of the sculptures, carvings, illuminated manuscripts, textiles and silverware.

This double whammy is a true Tuscan wonder that will blow you away as much as their wine. Bring your camera and take your time.

Both the Duomo and sacred art museum are well worth visiting while you are in San Gimignano. You must use the free audioguide especially to understand the frescoes in the Duomo - excellent
