  • run by volunteers who look after him like a son, this church with an unexpected shape was originally a barn. but we are in firenze, so they adorn it donatello, ghiberti, brunelleschi, giambologna, orcagna... also visit the upper floors to see the original statures to which copies have been replaced on the outside. delicious glimpses of firenze from the tall windows.

  • This church that before becoming a church was a warehouse, it presents itself with a very peculiar form for a church and is a jewel perhaps little publicized, but worth a visit.

  • This beautiful church was originally planned as a grain market in 1337. It's beautiful inside and outside, where we can find copies of statues made by famous artists like Donatello and Brunelleschi, among others. The originals are in museums.
  • We were lucky to find this place from another top view of the city. The second and third floor consists of a museum where there are some amazing statues. Unfortunately this is not always open to the public, and is best to enquire within this church.
