"Church of Orsanmichele" Orsanmichele Tip by codrutz
Orsanmichele, Florence: 9 reviews and 29 photos
The name derives from the ancient oratory of S. Michele in Orto. This was replaced in 1290 by A. di Cambio to host the grain logia-market. In 1380, the building became a church and the outside arcades were closed off. Tabernacles were then made to host many bronze statues of the patron saints of various guilds. Check out each of the statues. I liked the St. Peter by Donatello, St. John the Baptist by Ghiberti and St. Thomas with Christ by Verrocchio.
Address: Via dell'Arte della Lana
