Florence, Italy: Basilica di San Lorenzo

View of Basilica di San Lorenzo from Campanile di Giotto.

 

The Basilica is noted for several reasons: it is the burial place of all the principal members of the Medici family, is one of the most impressive examples of Renaissance art and architecture and can claim to be one of the oldest churches in the city. When consecrated in 393, the church stood outside the city walls.
