Three arcades, one of which is the church from which the square derives its name, enclose this beautiful square. The Church is large and richly decorated; it’s ambience is dark, mysterious and romantic. Several Chapels surround the altar. Another of the arcades, the Spedaledegli Innocents (Hospital of the Innocents), is Europe’s oldest orphanage, opened in 1445. The building has a small museum filled with portraits of Maddona and the child.
- The church side of the piazza bears the Brunelleschi outlined and La Robbia-enriched exterior façades of the SpedaledegliInnocenti, and on the western frontier by the Loggia dei Servi di Maria, which was outlined by Antonio da Sangallo the Elder and Bacciod'agnolo.
