What people are saying:

After attending the mass, we went down the abbey basement and prayed Vespers with the chanting monks. It was a very unique experience that added a dimension to my universal church experience.

Additional Information

Introduction

San Miniato is one of the most striking examples of Florentine Romanesque architecture, characterized by its bicoloured white and green marble façade. The altar, pulpit and transept recess feature fine marble decor, while the floor, in keeping with the Romanesque style, is decorated with symbolic ornamental motifs. Halfway along the nave on the left is another chapel; the Cappella del Cardinale Portogallo, which was designed by one of Brunelleschi's pupils. The architectural and decorative style resembles one of Brunelleschi's first creations; the Sagrestia Vecchia (Old Sacristy), which can be seen in San Lorenzo church.
