This is the worship Hall of the Medici family. The Medici family is a godlike existence. Without Medici, we can't say there is no Renaissance, but it will be delayed for many years at least. The outside is simple and unadorned, without redundant decoration, but simple and elegant, full of history. Just in time for Easter Eve, I went in and felt it.
The facade of the church is very ordinary and looks a little rough, but this is what the Italian church looks like in general. The church is funded by the Medici family, and part of it (Sagrestia Vecchia is said to be the little dome next to it) was designed by Brunelleschi, which is also the most worthwhile place to visit. Michelangelo is said to have redesigned the facade for the church, but It was not built for various reasons.
The Medici family ruled in Florence for more than five centuries and achieved the Italian Renaissance. He was the founder and promoter of the Renaissance. St. & Lorenzo Church is the chapel of the Medici family and the burial Mausoleum of the Medici family. The church was built in the 11th century. It has a Gothic structure of black and white marble. There are many sculptures and paintings in the church.
The exterior walls of St. Lorenzo Cathedral are weathered and look like medieval architectural style. The tour guides have been lobbying for more than a thousand years, but they can't see it. The interior of St. Lorenzo Cathedral is more general than the surrounding magnificent churches.
The Church in downtown Florence is not as famous as the Cathedral of Hundreds Flowers, but it is also very old and worth seeing.
