Orsanmichele Church and Museum (Chiesa e Museo di Orsanmichele) Tours

Built over a former Benedictine monastery garden and grain market in the late 14th century, the wrongly often-overlooked church of Orsanmichele was designed along Gothic lines, with ornate tracery around the doors and windows. Each of the wealthy trade guilds in Florence were commissioned to provide statues of their patron saints to fit the 14 niches in the exterior walls but the project lingered on and was eventually completed with exquisite works from such Renaissance masters as Ghiberti, Della Robbia, and Donatello. Replicas now fill the niches while most of the originals have been restored and are displayed in the two-floor museum above the church, where the original Gothic architecture is exposed, giving views of wooden vaulting and decorative brickwork.

Although the Gothic interior of Orsanmichele is wonderfully dour and gloomy, its stained glass is some of the oldest in Florence, its walls are marked with fading frescoes and it has two standout art treasures: an ornate marble, pillared and bejeweled tabernacle by Andrea Orcagna, completed in 1359 and surrounding a Madonna and Child by Bernardo Daddi (1347), which is believed to have magical healing powers.
