This church is very close to Ponte Vecchio but more ancient of it. The first news about it are dated in 420. Before in this area there was a cemetery and the church has today some sepulchral features. In 16th century it was linked to Corridoio Vasariano that linked Palazzo Pitti to Uffizi and Santa Felicita became the Church of Medici. They assisted to Mass from higher so nobody could seee them.

The building has a single nave and some Chapels, the main altar is on four staps. The most famous Chapel is that of Capponi family, it was build in 16th cenury by Brunelleschi. The Church contains works of Poccetti, Volterrano, Taddeo Gaddi etc.
