Santa Croce Basilic
The Basilica of Santa Croce was built in Florence in 1294 on the remains of a Franciscan church after the death of St. Francis of Assisi. It is located in the Plaza of the same name. Since its inception it has been a very important church. It has always been a meeting place for nobility, especially the Medici family. Throughout its history, it has undergone many modifications, ending up today as the Pantheon of the Italian Glories. Within the basilica are the tombs of Dante, Macchiavelo, Galileo Galilei, Michelangelo and others. A very interesting place.
