It worth having a look
Mar 2019 • Couples
Nothing that makes it a must see, but the area surrounding the church is very nice. A visit that doesn't take that long.

Chiesa del Santissimi Jacopo e Filippo / Certaldo Alto
Aug 2018 • Friends
In the Mainroad from Certaldo Alto is located Chiesa del Jacopo e Filippo, nice old church, and in the center I visited with my cousin the grave of Boccaccio; a white marble plate, there are also other tombs. Boccacio also was born and lived in Certaldo, his town, the story of his life.

Of interest, if in the area

Seeing the remains of the Blessed Julia are certainly of interest, as is the carved tomb of Boccaccio (with the red onion of Certaldo). All part of the charm of the village

Double whammy: Boccaccio's gravesite in center aisle & a saint's openly visible remains
Apr 2016 • Couples
For many unaccustomed to such a stark reminder of life's transient aspects, seeing the remains of Saint Julia can be a bit offsetting. However it's a common enough cultural phenomenon in southern Europe. I remember seeing hundreds of skeletons in the catacombs of the Appian Way quite a few scores distant. Now not one such example remains anywhere on that historic road in terms of allowable broad pubic sightings.

Here also are the remains of one well beyond "somewhat unsanctimonious" Boccaccio, who offered, for his time vivd purple and for our peruse mildly blue, detail as well as generous servings of otherwise inspired artistry in his recollections.

Unpretentious small church
Oct 2015 • Couples
Essentially Romanesque with Renaissance touches. The grave monument of the Blessed Tomaso is a touch gruesome. The chief reason for visiting -- unless you wish to worship there -- is that it contains the grave of Boccaccio, who was born and died here.
