This church is located just outside of the Porta Cellolese, the gate to the inner walls protecting San Gimignano. The church building dates from 1173 but it may originally have been a hospital at that time. It appears that the name of the church became San Bartolo, in devotion to St Bartolo, a local saint who died in 1299, in the latter half of the 16th century. The simple exterior facade is made of bricks with two rows, each row a different height and one above the other, of four blind arches resting on four semi columns. The top row has two blind arches either side of a window whilst the bottom row has two blind arches either side of the portal which has an arch that is higher than the other four and has a lintel above the portal that is decorated with a Greek Cross of the Knights of Jerusalem. The interior has a single nave with a wooden trussed roof which has obviously been renovated at some stage during the past couple of hundred years. The altar is very modest though it does have a 15th century wooden crucifix. I noticed only 3 paintings hanging around the brick walls. Not a must see.

The modest church with simple interior is one of the oldest in the city, built in the 12th century. Its best feature is the simple and beautiful brick facade with an elegant pattern of two, different sized, rows of blind arches supported by semi-columns.

If walking nearby, it's worth a quick stop to see this church. It's simple, but beautiful - just what you might picture for a town of this size. Light a candle for a loved one, say a prayer. Not sure it'd hunt it down to visit, but if your nearby, stop in.

If you are walking in Via San Mateo it is worth just a quick look in to see this church. It is the least decorated church I have seen in Italy - which in sense makes it quite attractive. It is quite an old church as it dates from the 12th century.

I have found this church by mistake due to the fact that I was looking for somewhere to eat and I encountered this church and decided to enter there. One in there I was amazed with the atmosphere in it and thus I decided to spend some time praying and then continue searching.
