  • The Orsanmichele church is a small, unpretentious church, outside you can't see anything. But inside there are a lot of statues. The church was built in the early Middle Ages and demolished and rebuilt. There are beautiful bas reliefs. The altar inside remains beautiful. There are a lot of stars of David and it feels like a synagogue. The church is connected to another building. A loggia. There is a nice tour to do in the church, there are beautiful views, a beautiful panorama, so beautiful pictures to take.

  • This beautiful church was originally planned as a grain market in 1337. It's beautiful inside and outside, where we can find copies of statues made by famous artists like Donatello and Brunelleschi, among others. The originals are in museums.
  • Beautiful sculpture and sights on the high flour. Please donate =)
