This 13th century Florentine Gothic Basilica, laid out in Egyptian cross style is the tomb of some of Florence’s most important personalities - Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Enrico Fermi, Galileo, Ugo Foscolo, Guglielmo Marconi, Luigi Cherubini, Leon Battista Alberti, Vittorio Alfieri, Gioacchino Rossini, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Lorenzo Bartolini, Pier Antonio Micheli, Bartolomeo Cristofori, Giovanni Gentile, That’s why they also call it the Temple of Italian Glories. It’s the largest Franciscan Church in the world.

Its highlights are:

  • The 16 chapels with frescoes by Giotto and his students.
  • The Pazzi Chapel. The Chapel, which is in the first cloister, is thought to bean Early Renaissance masterpiece. Built as a place to teach and lecture the monks of the church, it’s thought the Pazzis also wanted to show off their wealth and power. The interior décor is sublime.
  • The Museo dell'Opera di Santa Croce. The museum is in the refectory. You’ll find a monument dedicated to Florence Nightingale (she was born in this city after all).

The Piazza Santa Croce outside the church has a marble statue of Dante sculpted by Enrico Pazzi. Visit Italy in 10 Days Itinerary for an unforgettable Italy travel experience

  • The facade is being renovated, but don't let that put you off visiting this beautiful Basilica. The interior is typically ornate as you would expect in such a place of worship with a number of beautifully decorated side chapels. Whilst there is work being done internally, this didn't spoil our visit, and we were able to see several of the craftsmen at work.

  • Beautiful cathedral. Still working on the facade till spring 2019.

  • Beautifully Ornate Church in Lecce, wonderful example of the Baroque (or even Rococo?) extravagance of the counter-reformation. Facade under renovation, but still open to be viewed. Very worth your time if you are in town

  • Beautiful. Majestic. Must see.

  • Very interesting
