Santa Maria Novella

Santa Maria Novella is a church located across the train station with the same name in Florence, Italy. Historically, it is the first big basilica and the first church that belongs to the sect of Dominican. It really gives a sense of awe with its art treasures, funerary monuments, and paintings of Gothic and early Renaissance masters. Santa Maria Novella is worth visiting as it houses masterpieces such as "The Holy Trinity" by Masaccio, the famous wooden statue of Crucifix by Brunelleschi, and the "Madonna del Rosario" by Giorgio Vasari for the altar section of the church. Admire the frescoes by Tommaso Strozzi, who was inspired by Dante's Divine Comedy, the masterpiece that we know as: hell, purgatory and paradise.
