  • Close to the Cathedral Square, 200 metres from it, is an unusual Orsanmichele Church. The name of the Church and its affiliation changed several times. Features of appearance is delicate delicate stonework, gorgeous svitrazhami window with the history of the life of the Virgin, as well as sculptures of Saints adorning the façade of the building.
