The church is closed to the public.
The church stands next to the former Ospizio dei Trovatelli (Foundling Hospital).
In the Middle Ages it was called Church of San Giorgio ai Tedeschi because it had been built in honour of the German mercenaries (Tedeschi being the Italian for Germans) who had fought and died for Pisa in the victorious Battle of Montecatini against the Tuscan Guelphs.
The building has been restored in the Romanesque style. The interior preserves a crucifix of the German school and a few oval canvases by Ceuli.
