SantaCroce_display


Built in 1294 by Arnolfo di Cambio, Santa Croce is the main Franciscan church in Florence.
It is the largest Franciscan church in the world, and it is famous for artwork and monuments
 in the nave and its 16 chapels, which are decorated with frescoes by Giotto, Taddeo Gaddi,
Giovanni da Milano and several other prominent pre-Renaissance and Renaissance artists.

SanLorenzo_display


One of the largest churches in Florence, the Basilica of San Lorenzo was the parish
church of the Medici family, and many of the major family members are buried in the Basilica.
Brunelleschi’s structure is considered to be a milestone in Renaissance architecture, and
houses sculpture and architectural works by Donatello many other Renaissance artists.

While I was in Florence, I did a lot of walking around. While on my excursions from here to there,
I often encountered a facade of note or a statue worth shooting. On this page, I have placed
images of the exteriors of some churches that I encountered while walking about the city.

This page includes a detailed analysis of the most important Renaissance facade in Europe,
(Santa Maria Novella), plus interiors of San Marco, Orsanmichele sculptures, San Miniato al Monte,
and exteriors taken of the unusual Russian Orthodox Church and the Baroque church of San Gaetano..
