Basilica di Santa Maria Novella
The Basilica di Santa Maria Novella church was built in 1278 by architects Fra Sisto and Fra Ristoro, who were part of the Dominican order. The work was carried on by Fra Jacopo Talenti and Fra Giovanni da Campi and was constructed in a Gothic style. The church still bears evidence of the Gothic style in the lower part of the facade in its grave niches, with its pointed arches, which are clad in green and white marble. The most important and interesting objects of art are to be found in the chapels. The sacristy and its furnishings can be seen on the left side of the church.

Breathtaking art and architecture. Many beautiful side chapels and not to be missed are the tombs of Galileo and Michaelangelo!! This is just one of many jewels Florence has to offer!
