Decent chapels Oct 08, 2010
La Chiesa degli Eremitani translates as the church of the hermits. Built in the latter half of the thirteenth century, the church is dedicated to Saint Phillip and Saint James. The monastery next door now serves as an art gallery (which incidentally, is very good and worth popping into).
The chapels are very beautifully and consistently well decorated. I thought the frescoes were very detailed and well-preserved considering their age. Some of the frescoes are being restored, so these would make a great comparison with the ones that are just partially visible.
Entrance is free and photography is allowed. I really think the open space leading up to this church makes for a really nice walk. Therefore, it’s worth just visiting the area and if the church happens to be open, it’s worth popping in quickly!
