Additional Location Information
San Frediano is the district that writer Vasco Pratolini chose as setting for his famous novel The Girls of San Frediano: it is still today the most popular part of the Old Florence, where frescoes by Masaccio and Florentine wit live side by side.

Before you reach the gate, you'll notice the unpolished feel of the area neatly reflected in the unadorned brick walls of the Chiesa di San Frediano in Cestello, whose incomplete façade hides a restrained version of a baroque interior. The western side of Piazza di Cestello is occupied by granaries built under Cosimo III de' Medici.
