Church of Saint John “fuorcivitas”

Church of Saint John “fuorcivitas”

The church, which was originally built outside the town walls (“fuorcivitas” means “outside the city”), assumed its present aspect between the 12th and 14th centuries.

The structure’s white and green façade represents one of the greatest achievements of Pistoia’s Romanesque architectural heritage.

Inside, the church boasts a magnificent pulpit by Fra Guglielmo da Pisa (1270), as well as a glazed earthenware depiction of the Visitation, which is attributed to the work of Luca Della Robbia.
