The small church of Santa Felicita was used by the Medici family dukes and holds the Mannerist artist Pontormo's masterpiece, "The Deposition." The unusual colors, exaggerated poses and expressive portraits are an unforgettable theatrical scene..

We attended Sunday Mass here and it gave the visit a different context than what we usually feel when we visit churches. This is a living church with 400 years of worship history. Very beautiful and vibrant chapels and paintings.

Yet another wonderful church in Florence. Part of the fun of our stay was hunting down all these churches - there are so many and they are all different in their own way. This one is well worth looking at.

Do visit this church to see gorgeous frescoes by Pontormo! The frescoes are in a chapel to the right as one enters the church. Don't miss this church near the Ponte Vecchio. Do take a Euro coin to insert into a machine nearby to illuminate...More

This church is worth the visit just to see the painting but has many other qualities too. Beware of the opening hours.
