San Pietro in Vinculis (meaning Saint Peter in Chains), built, just like the Church of San Nicola, by the Augustinian monks, features the same architectural elements characteristic of the Romanesque style implemented under the prestige of the famed Pisa Cathedral. Its façade is pegged out by blind arches, mullioned windows and lozenges.

The Roman capitals inside the church are, as it seems, preexistent to the Christian establishment as such, which proves that San Pietro in Vinculis was built on the remains of an ancient building the use of which is not accurately known. Other possible elements to draw the interest refer to the Roman sarcophagus it hosts and to the vestiges of some frescoes and of a Crucifix dating back to various centuries.
