Neighborhood: Duomo
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

This church is located across the street from Orsanmichele, was constructed starting in 1349 and completed in 1404. In 1616, it took its current name after being deeded to the brotherhood of the Lombard nation and dedicated to Saint Charles. It boasts an unassuming façade of sandstone with an arched entry portal. Above the arch is a round window and the interior is of a single nave design.

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.

Chiesa di San Carlo dei Lombardi is a rather simple old church, both inside as well as outside. It is quite an old building, in the Gothic style, dating back to 1349, but built on a site on which an earlier, 8th century church had existed until the late 13th century. Worth a look if you happen to be walking by.

In front of the Church of Orsanmichele, you will find the Church of San Carlo dei Lombardi. The beauty of this church is in its simplicity. Both the interior and exterior are very plain. It was built in 1349 and was named St. Anne. Then it was known as Church of St. Michele in 1404 and in 1616 was named San Carlo dei Lombardi. Stop in and contrast the difference between and the nearby Church of Orsanmichele.

This church is upstaged by the bigger attractions in Florence. But it is a beautiful church worth visiting.
The church was built in 1349 originally as thanksgiving to St. Anne for the expulsion from Florence of the Duke of Athens in 1343.

There's a pleasant surprise for believers. Next to a bronze statue depicting San Padre Pio of Pietralcina there's a case with on of his gloves.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this church is the right place for some quiet reflection.

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.
