Waldensian Church

The Waldensian church in Florence was built between 1892 and 1904 by the Scottish architect George Frederick Bodley. It was then a reconstruction of the first Anglican church in Florence, dating back to the 1840s. In 1966, the church was purchased by the Waldensian church which previously met at the temple in via dei Serragli, inside the Ricasoli-Salviati palace. Because of its Anglican origins, the Waldensian church has an English neo-Gothic style.

Santa Maria del Fiore

The cathedral, named in honor of Santa Maria del Fiore, also known as the Duomo, is one of the most remarkable symbols of the city of Florence. The vast Gothic structure was built on the site of the 7th century church of Santa Reparata, the remains of which can be seen in the crypt. The magnificent dome was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and the more recent multicolor façade was completed in 1887 in the neo-Gothic style.

Basilica di San Lorenzo

The Basilica of San Lorenzo was built on the site of a church consecrated in 393 by Ambrose of Milan, which was considered the oldest religious building in the city. The construction of the present building was begun in 1424 by Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446) and continued by Antonio Manetti (1423-1497) after Brunelleschi's death. The interior of the façade is the work of Michelangelo; despite his plans, it remains unfinished.
