The Santa Trìnita (English: Holy Trinity), is a church in the San Giovanni District of Florence. It was built between 1250 to 1258 and was located near the Palazzo Auditore.

History

Constructed over an existing church in 1258, Santa Trinita was known for its Sassetti chapel, which was decorated with the frescos of the life of Saint Francis by Domenico Ghirlandaio, a painter most famous for his brief role as one of Michelangelo's teachers.[1]

Santa Trinita was the mother church of the Vallumbrosan order of monks, a very serious group that strictly enforced both poverty and silence, for life.[1]

Despite the beauty of the Santa Trinita frescos, very few Vallumbrosan monks were likely to have seen them, on account of the fact that the monks received beatings for going outside their monasteries.[1]

In 1476, Ezio Auditore da Firenze raced his brother Federico to the roof of the church. Upon reaching the roof, they took in a view of the city.[2]
