Stunning chapel with a respectful nod to the Pazzi family. Serene and tranquil when you step in. It’s a cool building so perfect to sit, reflect and take in its magnificence. Highly recommend.

The Capella del Pazzi is a wonderful Chapel designed by Brunelleschi. Simple and elegant, it is located in a central part of Florence and is easily reached. Beautiful!

Understated, early Renaissance, formality and elegance. Very nice to witness in person. It is difficult to imagine how radical this was when the architect designed it. Brava, Brunelleschi!

The Pazzi Chapel has some interesting history, but the edifice itself pales relative to the Basilica di Santa Croce, of which it is a part.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
