Basilica of Santa Maria Novella

18 Piazza Santa Maria Novella, 50123, Firenze
Built between 1246 and 1360 by Dominicans on the site of a former oratory, the church boasts a marble facade and it is a great example of the Florentine Renaissance style. It features a Romanesque-Gothic bell tower. The vast interior contains Corinthian columns and many artworks by the best Italian painters and sculptors. Six chapels were added between the columns by Giorgio Vasari during a reconstruction commissioned by Cosimo de' Medici in the 16th century. One of the many highlights is the Giotto's Crucifix, which is perfectly restored and located in the center of the main nave. It shows the body of Christ painted in gold on a wood panel. The Gondi Chapel houses another famous wooden Crucifix made by Brunelleschi at the beginning of the 15th century. The Bardi Chapel contains a stone altar with a painting of the Madonna del Rosario made by Giorgio Vasari. The Filippo Strozzi Chapel takes its name after the Italian banker and statesman who has his tomb here. It's worth visiting for the frescoes painted by Filippino Lippi.

Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy

Via della Scala 16, 50123 Florence, Italy
Founded at the beginning of the 13th century by Dominican monks, this store is considered to be the oldest European pharmacy. The monks grew medicinal herbs in the monastery and used them to make balms, ointments, and medicines for their hospital. By 1612, the pharmacy became famous and started selling the products to the public and even abroad. The Old Apothecary now serves as a herbalist's shop which still uses the traditional recipes. The pharmacy also includes a small museum, which provides information not only about the pharmacy's products but also about the history and techniques of the store.
