The white, light Church stands on the quayside of the Arno. It is sculpted with spires, gables, pinnacles, niches and rose windows and is a real jewel which was designed to house a thorn from Christ's crown. Originally built at river level and then rebuilt brick by brick on its current site in 1871, the church is a charming picture of harmony and simplicity.
