San Miniato al Monte, Florence

Italy remained closest to the classical language of architecture. San Miniato al Monte in Florence uses Corinthian columns and marble veneer. The columns and capitals are rich in their spolia, framing the bichrome intarsia altar housing the supposed remains of the patron saint Minias, gleaming at the back of the crypt.

The photo shows the interior of the church, view to the east.
