Piazza Santa Croce.
Piazza S. Ambrogio / Sant'Ambrogio was one of the first religious buildings to go up in Florence. Rebuilt in the 13th century and again more recently, the present facade is 19th century.
Piazza San Remigio / Probably founded in the time of Charlemagne and dedicate to Saint Remy / Bishop of Reins. It was rebuilt in the XIV century and the interior is an harmonious example of gothic architecture. It is divided into three naves by octagonal pillars and painted arches. Remarkable is the MaThnna enthroned / painted by an artist influenced by Cinabue and called "the Master of San Remigio".
Piazzale Michelangelo Area.
Piazza San Marco / The Convent was mentioned as early as the 12th century. in 1437 Cosino the Elder commissioned Michelozzo to rebuild it and the convent of San Marco was therefore the first to be built in the elegant terse forms of the Renaissance.
Piazza San Lorenzo / Consecrated by St. Ambrose in 393, it is the oldest church in the city. It was then rebuilt along Romanesque lines in 1060. The present building dates to 1423 and was designed and built by Brunelleschi.
Piazza San Firenze / San Filippo Neri (built by P. Francesco Silvani 1620 / 1685 finished in the XVIII century by Ferdinand Ruggieri and Zanobi Del Rosso).
Piazza Santo Spirito / The church of Santo Spirito founded in 1250 received its present form in the 15th century when it was built after a model by Brunelleschi who had conceived it as a twin to the church of San Lorenzo. The facade however was never finished and is still only a rough plastered wall with an undefined silhouette at the top.
Borgo SS. Apostoli / Begun in 1075, the church of the SS. Apostoli was a prototype for many other Florentine churches with its archaic Roman forms. Even though it is of modest size, the building has considerable solemnity.
