Orsanmichele Church & Museum

The Chiesa E Museo Di Orsanmichele is conveniently located halfway between the Palazzo della Signoria and the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. Known to be a unique and wonderful monument where the civic and the religious come together as one.

The art historian, Antonio Paolucci, labeled it as a “temple of work” because of its symbolic representation of the Florentine guilds.

On the outside you will see copies of sculptures from the most famous fifteenth and sixteenth century Florentine artists. However original sculptures can be found inside located on the first floor of the museum. You can then proceed to the second floor to find a unique and unparalleled panorama of Florence.

Be sure to take a look at the impressive marble tabernacle of the Madonna delle Grazie located in the church’s interior, where Holy Mass is regularly celebrated.
