The Franciscan church of Santa Croce started off in 1210 as a modest chapel, and the larger church was completed in the 14th century. The interior, with open roof beams is Gothic, while the facade is 19th century neo-Gothic. The church is the last resting place of Michelangelo, Dante, and Galileo, amongst other notable Italians, plus many artworks.

This was a bell-pull near where you could light a candle. Love the intricate patterns.
