The church is in a lovely square, and unlike many churches in Florence, it's free to enter the main part. To see the side chapel and courtyard costs €3. There is a wooden crucifix, sculpted by Michelangelo when he was 18 for the prior who allowed him to study anatomy in the hospice. The courtyard was lovely and peaceful.
When you look at it from outside you'd say is just... A big church! Its charm lives inside it! It contains an amazing collection of Renaissance / Baroque art, mixed with tombs of important families who donated lots of money to the church to be buried in the Basilica. There's also an exhibition of young Michelangelo.
Nice light show. Looks like local children's art. Piazza is a good place to get a drink with several nice bars.
Just walked by but a beautiful building.
The secret treasure of Florence. The Michelangelo wooden crucifix from a 19-year-old art student Michelangelo is sublime. It's in the capella. Don't miss it.
One of the places in Florence where locals and travelers in the night sit on the stairs of the church, drink, play guitar, talk, have fun, chill. Really nice and calm. Have to visit in the night 😊
The square where it is located is quite vibrant. People often sit on the stairs and enjoy a relaxing night.
Beautiful Chiesa, great palazza and plenty of life, food and song. Even dancing some nights and daily markets.
