It is the main Marian shrine in Florence. It was founded in 1250 by the "Seven Saints" of the order of the Servants of Mary; with its facade, contiguous to the Brunelleschi's facade of the Spedale degli Innocenti, it constitutes one of the sides of the scenographic, homonymous square.
The frescoed cycle of the Chiostrino dei Voti, before the entrance to the church, is an anthology of the early Florentine mannerism, with fine frescoes by Andrea del Sarto, Pontormo, Rosso. The interior, mainly decorated in the Baroque era, contains numerous masterpieces, including the highly venerated fourteenth-century image of the Annunciation, inside the michelozziano temple.
