Der Blick auf die Santo Spirito Basilika Eingang der Santo Spirito Basilika Die Santo Spirito Basilika bei Nacht

The Santo Spirito Basilica is considered to be the last masterpiece of the famous Renaissance architect Filippo Brunelleschi and is especially known for its plain frontage. The church was built in the space where a Augustinian monastery used to be before it was destroyed during a fire. In contrast to the unembellished exterior, the interior is more majestic due to the numerous pillars separating the three aisles from each other. Another highlight is the picturesque painting in the vault as well as the coffered ceiling.
