This extraordinary structure testifies to the historic evolution of the city, which once served as a granary in the gardens of the Sisters of San Michele during Florence's mercantile period.

We were walking and happened onto this wonderful small cathederal, chapel. What a beautiful small gem, that brought on such a reverent feeling upon entry. The inside was breath taking and set a perfect surrounding for the beautiful artwork that was inside. Just a few...More

I only wish I had been here when museum was open. Rick Steve's audio tour gave a fabulous summary of this Church and the beautiful artwork within - Bernardo Daddi's painting of the Madonna "in situ" and on the outside. I would like to return.

A stunning interior & important location in the history of Florence's rise to power in the 15th century. Be aware that one apparent entrance to the church is actually a ticket sellers - you need to go round th eother side to get in.

Definitely worth checking out. And it's free! Walk around the outside and admire the statues. Then go inside. Beautiful. As others have mentioned, an old granary (can still see some of the grain chutes on the pillars) that was converted into a church... the church...More

Lovely little church, great museum, spectacular views of Florence from the upper floors. When I went it was only open on Monday mornings but that may now have changed.

Pleasant enough church, museum not overly inspiring although it does offer pretty good views over the city.

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
