Owner description: Located on the bank of the Arno River, this church is Pisa's finest example of Gothic fancy.

This beautiful building is easy to miss, but worth the walk. The Gothic features of the little church are exemplified by sculptures on the facade. Every character is rendered in exquisite detail. It's the surprise art treat that most tourists miss.

An architectural gem but difficult for the tourist to access. Non the less, look at the detail. Note the wonderful detail, keeping in mind the relic from the crown of thorns is supposedly inside. Then cross the bridge and look back at the river that once was home to the largest navy in Italy. Enjoy.

Conspicuously white, small church on the bank of Arno, on top of small, thin, Gothic turrets. It’s also special for me because I had seen just large Gothic churches. Opening hours: October to March: Tuesday-Sunday 10-14.; April to September: Tuesday-Friday 10-14 and 15-18 Saturday and Sunday 10-14 and 15-19. Closed on monday.

Very beautiful from the outside and apparently housing a Holy relic, but although listed as being open at the weekend, we never found it so.

A beautiful little church on the south bank of the river, now used mostly as an art gallery. If no exhibition it is only open in teh early evening.
