Piazza di San Giovanni, 1, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy
With a Gothic look, Loggia del Bigallo is one of many galleries in Florence, but probably the most beautiful of them all. It serves a charitable purpose as it was built by Compagnia della Misericordia, a so-called “Company of Mercy”. The company hosts and takes care of orphans, pilgrims, transport sick people and helps with burials.
Even in a degraded state, Loggia del Bigallo still has bas-reliefs and sculptures that are worth being seen, as well as stories that need to be listened to. If you want to visit this hidden gem of Florence, we invite to go on a self-guided tour of Florence with Questo. You will learn fascinating local stories and visit both hidden gem and top Florence tourist attractions while you follow clues around town.
