Basilica Di Santa Croce, Florence: 122 reviews and 244 photos


This is a picture of the facade of Santa Croce and the statue of Dante Alighieri that stands in front of it. Just like the Duomo, Santa Croce's facade was added to the Gothic church in the 19th century. It may be more famous as a burial grounds than as a church, however, with more famous Italians buried here than anywhere else in the city. Michelangelo, Galileo, Rossini and Machiavelli are among some of the historical figures that are now resting here.
The art inside the church is spectacular, much better in fact than the more famous Duomo.
