Chiesa di San Domenico information
A short detour from the duomo, this church has an unusual, asymmetrical facade and an austere interior dominated by a haunting Crucifixion over the main altar, one of Cimabue's earliest works. Note, too, the well-preserved fresco of Saint Philip and Saint Jacob and the Story of their Lives by Spinello Aretino (1350–1410) on the inside of the facade. You'll need a €1 coin to illuminate the Cimabue.
