  • The cloister opposite the Church is particular and interiors are lovely. For tourists it is certainly an important milestone, but for the Florentine worth stop by. As a place of worship is also quite popular. A peculiarity: the Church houses some South American procession statues depicting the Blessed Virgin Mary.

  • To get to the Church must pass through a narrow medieval Street Borgo Pinti, once she was out of town, now just a little away from the tourist routes. The Church was founded in 1257, together with the monastery of Benedictine monks. The building in the Gothic style 1257, simple rectangular form, with Windows and arches, cute patio. Only in 1669, the Church received its current name. Very much a Renaissance painting: the works of Botticelli, Perugino, Rosselli.

  • Built in the mid-200, where there was already a House for women "repentite" (from which perhaps derives the name of Borgo Pinti, mentioned by Dante in the Divine Comedy, where the Church and the monastery are located). Between ' 400 and ' 500, was rebuilt in Renaissance style by g. da Sangallo and filled with works of art of the best artists of the time; Unfortunately they were all transported elsewhere and rebuilt during renovations six eighteenth century, which saw the dedication to the Saint who died in 1607, of which today bears the name. The Renaissance remains (in the adjacent school) the beautiful fresco (Crucifixion) by Perugino.
