Pieve di San Pietro

One of Tuscany’s finest medieval churches is filled with fascinating carvings atop its columns, each telling a different story.

Pieve di San PietroCapital Storytelling

Erected around the year 1000, the Parish Church of San Pietro in Gropina was built on the site of an even older Longobard church, and a 4th century BC temple. The church is famous for the variety of imagery adorning its many columns. Each capital tells an individual story, ranging from the Old and New testaments, to Etruscan and Eastern imagery. Attached to two knotted columns is the richly decorated 8th century pulpit. The rest of the interior is intentionally stark, allowing visitors and the faithful alike to enjoy the site’s peace and tranquillity.
