Part 6 of my recent visit to the magnificent Franciscan basilica of Santa Croce. You can find the other posts here.
Check out Santa Croce from the front. I wonder how long we can enjoy the city before the tourists return? Not sure, but I am enjoying every second of the city in its current, quieter state.
When you leave the interior of the church, walking into the cortile, you immediately see the splendid Pazzi Chapel. The chapel wasn’t accessible yet when I was there, but even a look from the outside is enough to calm the soul.
The Pazzi is seen in the plan below; note the circle in the plan and that’s the chapel. You can see how the green lawn in front sets it off. Green grass is a rare commodity in Florence.
