Fantastic frieze

Great facade with the frieze made by Della Robbia. Inside is an old hospital with free toilets.
Waiting room for the subterranean tour.

You have to understand Italien if you want to get something out of this guided tour, the guide tried to speak English but it didn`t help, bless him though, he did try :)

Amazing facade
Apr 2019 • Couples
A free view across the square of a beautiful terracotta frieze by Della Robbia. Looking as as fresh as new.

Once a super important institution
Feb 2018 • Friends
One of the oldest and most prestigious hospitals in Europe and quite prolific during the Renaissance when it had its facade decorated in a beautiful ceramic glaze frieze with figures depicting the acts of mercy.

The della Robbia ceramics on the portici are priceless
Aug 2018 • Family
This "hospital" was hosptial, orphanage and social services center in the Renaissance era. The portico covered the area where carts woud pull up with the sick. The della Robbia ceramics depict the Seven Works of Mercy -- you don't need a guide, you can tell "feed the hungry", "visit the imprisoned", etc. They look like they were done recently -- they are so brilliant in the afternoon sun.

Must Do
Aug 2018 • Family
If you are in the town then the tour around and under the old hospital is a must. Very interesting and gets you out of the sun for a little while

A very interesting tour
Oct 2017 • Business
this hospital was originally run by monks in the middle ages, it developed into the 21st century and has since been closed and e-located. However the ancient parts are here as a museum, see where post postmortems were held for students to watch
