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.

This is Brunelleschi ‘s masterpiece that ushered in Renaissance architecture. Next door is Santa Croce whose gothic interior is a great contrast to the simpler and cleaner lines of Brunelleschi ‘s Pazzi Chapel. Santa Croce is the Florentine Pantheon and you will see tombs of...More

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!

This building with its high ceilings, round arches, muted but tasteful symbolic decorations, airy, personable interiors is THE Renaissance symbol to visit, admire, reflect over and cherish.

After our visit of the magnificent Basilica di Santa Croce, we walked outside into the first cloister and found the beautiful Cappella dei Pazzi. The Pazzi Chapel was built between 1441 and 1478 and is considered an early Renaissance masterpiece. The wealthy Pazzi family commissioned...More

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.

The Pazzi Chapel has very good architecture and is located in the cloister of the Basilica of Santa Croce. There is a dome at the porch with a very beautiful design. It was built by the very prominent Pazzi Family that wanted to make a...More

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.
