The Capella del Pazzi is a wonderful Chapel designed by Brunelleschi. Simple and elegant, it is located in a central part of Florence and is easily reached. Beautiful!

This building with its high ceilings, round arches, muted but tasteful symbolic decorations, airy, personable interiors is THE Renaissance symbol to visit, admire, reflect over and cherish.

After our visit of the magnificent Basilica di Santa Croce, we walked outside into the first cloister and found the beautiful Cappella dei Pazzi. The Pazzi Chapel was built between 1441 and 1478 and is considered an early Renaissance masterpiece. The wealthy Pazzi family commissioned Brunelleschi, one of the best architects of that time, to built the Chapel. Brunelleschi designed... More

Understated, early Renaissance, formality and elegance. Very nice to witness in person. It is difficult to imagine how radical this was when the architect designed it. Brava, Brunelleschi!

The Pazzi Chapel has some interesting history, but the edifice itself pales relative to the Basilica di Santa Croce, of which it is a part.

The Pazzi Chapel has very good architecture and is located in the cloister of the Basilica of Santa Croce. There is a dome at the porch with a very beautiful design. It was built by the very prominent Pazzi Family that wanted to make a name for itself with this chapel.

Within the Basilica di Santa Croce grounds, you will find the Cappela dei Pazzi (Pazzi Chapel), which was originally constructed in the 1440-1460s. There is important historical significance to this chapel as the Pazzi family, for whom the chapel was built and financed, was of high importance in Florence at this time, behind only the Medici family. While interesting historically,... More

Designed by Brunelleschi, the Chapel and its dome reflect both the aspirations of Florence and the renaissance ideals of coherence and perfection. It is at once serene and awe-inspiring. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you are in the Church of Santa Croce anyway.
