Nice frescoes May 09, 2011
Located within the medieval town walls is the charming church of Saint Dominic. The building dates back to as far as the early thirteenth century, taking until the early half of the fourteenth century for its completion. The church is constructed in a Romanesque style and has a very handsome exterior. Inside, the church looks rather empty and you get the impression that very few people come here apart from the odd tourist. It’s still worth coming here though, as the thirteenth century frescoes and wooden interior beams make it a very special building. Unfortunately the key artwork from here was a Crucifix by the artist Cimabue, which has been moved the Basilica di San Francesco nearby. This is a very easy basilica to get to while in Arezzo and is definitely worth a quick visit.
