Basilica di San Lorenzo is the oldest church in the city, although it was rebuilt several times.

The interior of this church was completed by Brunelleschi and later by Michelangelo. But, the fašade is still not finished.

There are some works of art inside: the two pulpits built by Donatello when he was already 74 years old, The Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana and the Tombe Medicee, works by Michelangelo, the Cappella dei Principi chapel with its magnificent decorations in marble and semi-precious stones.
