Santa Maria della Spina hotels
Santa Maria della Spina
Santa Maria della Spina is a tiny church in Pisa which was designed in the classic Gothic style and was originally built around 1230. Because of its location on the banks of the Arno, it has been threatened by flooding and water damage and consequently taken apart and rebuilt on a level higher in 1871. Despite its small size, the exterior is highly intricate and fanciful with detailed cusps, arches, sculptures, and statues designed by famed 14th century Pisane artists including Giovanni di Balduccio and Lupo di Francesco.
- Take a look at the wooden interior of the Santa Maria della Spina which has painted overhead beams and contains the Gothic masterpiece Madonna of the Rose created by Andrea and Nino Pisano.
- Hire one of the small boats and gondolas that line the Arno river for the chance to look at Pisa from a different perspective and enjoy a relaxing and educational tour to learn more about the city.
- Check out the neighbouring church of Santa Maria del Carmine which was founded in Pisa by Carmelite monks in 1325 and has exquisite paintings and furnishings.
