Neighborhood: Santo Spirito (Oltrarno)

The building appears extremely simple. It has a plaster facade which is only animated by tympan windows and by portals. The everyday construction was the work of Cronaca who renewed and enlarged the church at the end of the fifteenth century and the beginning of the sixteenth. The church was governed by the Franciscans and was limited to the space which is today known as the big chapel. The interior follows the model of other Florentine churches (eg Santa Maria Maddalena de'Pazzi). It is decorated with paintings from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and only a few works remain from the sixteenth century. Admission: Free.
