We just wandered into this little building..obviously once a church but now it also houses modern art alongside the original stuary and marble and alters. Quite lovely. There are 2 floors to explore..step up to the 2nd floor are very steep and winding.

Small church but very interesting inside. Early in its history it was a market and the early trades groups are still noted there. The altar is on one side on the church - very unique. Photos cannot be taken in the church.

Really nice old Catholic church that was started back in 1349. Church as a simple sandstone outer facade.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
