graveyard behind San Miniato al Monte
The graveyard behind San Miniato al monte is an old one. there are monumental graves. Some graves only have a cross, some have a buste of the disseased and some have entire miniture churches. There is also a modern cellar full of graves. The thing that most caught our attention were the electric lights at the graves...
San Miniato al Monte
This church is built in 1018 over the grave of christian martyr San Miniato, a rich armenian merchant who was beheaded by emperor Decius in the 3th century.
The facade is from 1090 with a geometric patern of colored marble. The mosaic is restored from the 13th century, it is Christ, with Mary and St Minias.
of course san miniato is a must see 'cause of the fabulous view and all, but if you're there around 5 pm you'll be able to hear the monks chanting. Just be very respectable while they're chanting.
