Recommendation by Lemi
The San Lorenzo Basilica has been around since year 393 (when it was consecrated). However, it was only in 1470, with the support of the Medici, that it was finally completed. It was their parish church, so their influence clearly shows in every inch of the Basilica. The family’s favorite artists all had a hand in the church’s beauty. The Old Sacristy was by Brunelleschi, the interior decorations and sculptures by Donatello, the Laurentian Library and New Sacristy by Michelangelo, and the Medici Chapels by Matteo Nigetti.
