Church of Santa Croce, my private tour

Church of Santa Croce, my private tour

What an amazing place! One of the finest examples of the Florentine Gothic style.


Being inside the church and focus on the Gothic arches of the naves is like taking a dip in 1300.

When anything began

The Franciscan friars arrived in Florence in the first half of the 13th century and decided to have here, at that time among the poorest areas of the city, their chapel, much smaller than today.

That old, first Franciscan Santa Croce church in Florence was rebuilt at the end of the 13th century. As often happened more than one architect worked for the new yard over the decades, among them the first architect was Arnolfo di Cambio. Arnolfo was the first architect of the Duomo as well.

The Santa Croce church today

The Basilica of Santa Croce is considered the Pantheon were many “ homelands glories “ are buried, Michelangelo, Galileo Galilei, Rossini etc.

The gothic architecture of the interior fits perfectly with the “ new “ styles Renaissance, Mannerism, Romanticism.

The artists

Agnolo and Taddeo Gaddi, Giorgio Vasari, Benedetto da Maiano, Donatello, Lorenzo Bartolini, Michelangelo, Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, and others will be our companions during this.
