"San Matteo in Soarta" Pisa Off The Beaten Path Tip by leics
Pisa Off The Beaten Path: 104 reviews and 203 photos
You might visit the Mueso di S. Matteo, but don't miss looking inside the little convent church next door to the entrance.
Originally built in 1027, it was enlarged in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Further changes were made in later centuries.
Inside you'll find a rather good 3D-effect ceiling (I saw a very similar one in the Gesu in Rome: perhaps this is a copy?) as well as various Baroque frescoes. There's also a wooden 14th-century crucifix: I saw a few of these in Pisa and found them rather fascinating. See other photos with this tip.
