One of the largest churches in Florence served as the parish church of the Medici family and it is also the burial place of all notable members of the family including Cosimo de' Medici, the first of the Medici rulers.
The construction started under Filippo Brunelleschi but it was finished long after his death due to a lack of funding. The Old Sacristy is actually the only part of the church completed by Brunelleschi himself. Although the final design differs from the original plans, it is still a great example of Renaissance architecture. The Mannerist Medici Chapel is the most famous part of the church.
