Basilica di Santa Croce, Florence

Close

Basilica di Santa Croce,

One of the hidden gems of Florence is the Basilica di Santa Croce, or Basilica of the Holy Cross. Set in the Piazza di Santa Croce, it is the main Franciscan church in Florence and the largest in the world. Said to be founded by St. Francis himself, it is the burial place and memorial site of many famous and celebrated italians such as Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Rossini and Dante.

Works of art include frescoes by Giotto, Donatello’s gilded limestone relief ‘The Annunciation’ and stunning stained glass windows. The doors to the main entrance are impressively carved and highly detailed and the chapel is designed by Brunelleschi, the architect who designed Il Duomo’s famous dome. The tombs are the finest of the early Renaissance.

It’s a very large church so you can look at the details without feeling crowded. If you enjoyed seeing the artwork here, why not visit the Galleria dell’Accademia and see the Statue of David, or compare the frescoes here to the 700 year old ones at the vista point of The Basilica di San Miniato al Monte.
