Orsan Michele, Firenze

A while back I took the opportunity to pay a visit to the famous Florentine church, built in a former granary.  It is opulent and lovely.


Above the church is a museum where all of the significant Renaissance sculptures originally placed in niches on the 4 facades of the church are now housed.  Copies of these grand works are now in the niches on the building’s facade.

Here are some of the original works:


The views of the city from the 2nd floor of Orsan Michele are pretty amazing.
