The magnificent building in the center of Florence, where Dante is often dropped in and which became home to the Jerusalem Brotherhood monks.
Badia Fiorentina is located on Via del Proconsolo, not far from the Dante's House Museum. Great Italian often looked to the abbey in the hope of seeing his beloved Beatrice.
For several centuries, the Badia Fiorentina was reconstructed and now it is more like a museum than a church, even though every day here is evening Mass, which attracts not only travelers but also locals.
Inside the Badia Fiorentina are many luxury frescoes, a baroque ceiling, paintings of 15th-century and tomb of Hugo.
