The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella, few steps from our Luxury Hotel in Florence

All the most popular highlights are settled in the heart of Florence and in only 5 minutes walking distance from our Luxury Hotel, it is possible to reach one of the architectural wonders of Italian art, the Church of Santa Maria Novella.

Santa Maria Novella is one of the most important churches in the city and it was built at the end of 1200 and was consecrated only in 1420 from Pope Martino V.

The famous green and white marble façade by Leon Battista Alberti contains elements of Florence’s whole history: Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance. It was completed in the 1920.

The work realized by Alberti, was a careful graft to the previous Gothics structures, unifying the new part with that ancient through the use of the modular geometry, giving value on the history construction and it enhances the inner landscape.

Elements of Gothic architecture get to enrich the vast interior of the Basilica of Santa Maria Novella of Florence characterized by a Latin cross (that is a T-shaped cross),and is divided into 3 aisles with 6 ample spans that make smaller toward the altar, making it look longer than its actual length.
At the end of the main altar it is possible to admire the Crucifix of Giotto which is about 5 metres high, that after12 years of restoration, in 2001 it has again been displayed.

The stained-glass windows realized from the 14th and 15th century, such as Madonna and Child, St. John and St. Philip designed by Filippino Lippi, both in the Strozzi Chapel.

This historical Gothic construction of the Renaissance is an obligatory stop if you will stay at the Hotel Golden Tower, one of the most luxury Hotels in the centre of Florence, that will offer you dream holidays.
