Badia Fiorentina by Andreas Jurgherr

Badia Fiorentina

The Badìa Fiorentina is an abbey and church that is now home to the Monastic Communities of Jerusalem. It is situated on the Via del Proconsolo in the centre of Florence. It is also in front of the ancient prison of the Bargello, next to the street that houses the now-called Casa di Dante, which was rebuilt in 1910 as a museum to Dante.

Badia in ancient Italian meant abbey, and Fiorentina just means Florentine.
