  • Once you've visited the most famous sites in Florence, it would be worth devoting a day to churches, gardens and buildings less famous and known, but worth visiting. This church (maybe it was the old cathedral of Florence) probably dates from the time of Charlemagne, and is in a small square of the most characteristic of Florence!

  • A wonder in the heart of the city! There are no words to describe the atmosphere among the old walls of this small but charming Florentine Church!

  • .. .and already maybe Charlemagne took a hand in the construction of the parish church, today unfortunately barely visible because a bit ... ... .... "drowned out" by other dwellings (also dated over time) around her without mercy! However, it is there for centuries and perhaps is one of the oldest churches in Florence (10th century) so much so that many vicissitudes of this part of the river also have passed by there! Simple Romanesque façade while overlooking a small square called "Limbo", true Medieval corner who still resists Florence today (partly this widening I suggest you note on a facade a stone plaque where it was stated the height za esondo ' in 1966 the Arno when water)! The Interior contains many things to visit (such as the capitals of Central columns in green marble of Prato-historical wooden ceiling the floor with mosaic-tombstones of noblemen Families like the Acciaiuoli or Altoviti-tiled Tabernacle Della Robbia polychrome-etc-etc. ..) . I stop here to list the precious artistic works of the nave: for the rest you have to come here!

  • It's a beautiful church, and they even have an English Mass on Sunday morning! I thought it was worth stopping in. It is antique and really has its own character amidst so many grandiose attractions in Florence.
  • Beautiful small church off the typical tourist route with some impressive works of art.
  • Good
  • The plaque on the left door of the Church says that Charlemagne was to lay the cornerstone of the building in 805. Actually dates back to the 11th century and the effigy is an invention in homage to the Carolingian epic.

  • A little jewel of Florentine culture in Piazza del Limbo. From via delle Terme accessing this square with this beautiful church which contains many important works of art from the allegory of the conception of Vasari to the Eucharistic Tabernacle by Giovanni della Robbia
