Travel to Italy: Florence: Churches: Photo 29
This is the courtyard of Santa Maria del Carmine. It's attached to a church that is mostly very recent, completed in 1782. The church does have the older and famous Brancacci Chapel, where Masaccio's frescoes brought a still-arresting realism and emotional intensity to sacred painting. It also has this courtyard, which may be nothing special but which is welcome after the pyrotechnics and egotism of the city's more famous churches.
