Enter the past: the oldest church in Florence: Santi Apostoli

I recently had the good fortune to find this old church in Florence (among the oldest) Santi Apostoli, open.  Here are my photos of the inside and outside of this lovely, antique space.

Santi Apostoli sits on the Piazza del Limbo, which as the sign below says, was “Gia Piazza di Apostoli” or formerly the Piazza di Apostoli.

And in this piazza, as in so many places throughout Florence, there is a sign showing how high the water reached during the flood of November 1966.  With the water at this height, most of Santi Apostoli would have been under water.
