One of the most important collections of Medieval
painting from the XIIth to the XVth c. is housed in San Matteo
National Museum: paintings by Giunta Pisano, Simone Martini,
Masaccio, Ghirlandaio, Beato Angelico can be here admired together
with a unique exhibition of Medieval crosses painted on wood.
It also contains Medieval wood and marble
sculptures and several ceramic bowls, mostly Islamic, and originally
used as decoration for the Pisan churches.
The places that once housed these treasures can
still be visited with a pleasant stroll through the city centre:
Piazza Garibaldi, the church of San Michele in Borgo, the Dominican
church of Santa Caterina, the small church of Santa Maria della
