San Frediano is one of most popular neighborhoods in Florence. You enter through Porta San Frediano on the west end of the Oltrarno. Borgo San Frediano takes you Chiesa San Frediano in Cestello. The church stands in the place where there was the monastery, Santa Maria degli Angeli, founded in 1450. Further down Borgo San Frediano, you can find Chiesa di Santa Maria di Carmine in Piazza del Carmine. Brancacci Chapel is located inside the church of Santa Maria di Carmine. Designed beautifully by Masaccio and Masolino from 1423 to 1428. San Frediano has many of the older artisians that are still working in their workshops like in the past.
