A bit out of the way for most, we happened upon San Domenico on our way out of Arezzo. Not large nor ornate, it offers a brief, peaceful stop.

One of the many churches in Arezzo, this is one of the smaller ones. However, it has lots of character and less ornate decorations.

This is a beautiful, simple church not far from the cathedral (duomo) in Arezzo. It is well worth searching out among the alleys and byways. The church stands on the edge of a peaceful square, and features 13th and 14th century artwork.
