San LorenzoApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

One of Florence's most powerful and surprising churches, the Church of San Lorenzo is easily recognized by the unfortunate fact that its facade was never constructed. The roughhewn brick surface lies in stark contrast to the precise and calm beauty of the interior. Even today, San Lorenzo is one of Florenceā€™s most important and powerful churches - a fact that has been true for centuries.
