Santa Trinita Florence

This early Vallombrosian church was founded in the eleventh century and was almost totally remodeled in the sixteenth century. In the right transept we can admire the beautiful Sassetti Chapel (1480) with Ghirlandaio’s frescoes of Scenes from the Life of St. Francis set in Renaissance Florence.

In spite of the late Renaissance facade by B.Buontalenti, the church of S.Trinita is one of the most beautiful realization of Florentine gothic style.
The interior has a nave and two aisles with pointed arches and cross vaults. The restoration made after the damages of the flood,has brought back to their original beauty,the frescoes of the chapel.
The most notable works here are: the Annunciation by Lorenzo Monaco,the Federighi Tomb,marble creation by Luca della Robbia.The frescoes of the Sassetti Chapel and the Adoration of the Shepherds on the altar are by Ghirlandaio.
