Piazza Santa Trinita, named after the church Santa Trinita, is unusual square because it has triangular plan. It is one of those spot which could be easilly missed among all attractions which Florence is offering, almost kind of "off the beatten road" place. The easiest way to reach it is from the Ponte Trinita, taking direction of Via Tornabuoni.
It is rather small but very charming square full of interesting buildings all around it. The central position of the square is occupied by the Column of Justice, which originates from the Baths of Caracalla. The column was a gift to Cosimo I de Medici by Pope Pius IV and was used in 1565 to commemorate the Battle of Montemurlo.
Besides the Basilica of Santa Trinita, there are three very interesting palaces on the square, Palazzo Bartolini Salimbeni, Palazzo Spini Feroni and Palazzo Buondelmonti.
