In the middle of this plaza stand bronze copies of Michelangelo’s "David" and the four statues on the tombs in the Medici Chapels.

Just above Piazzale Michelangelo stands the basilica of San Miniato al Monte. The green and white marble façade of the basilica is considered one of the finest examples of the Florentine Romanesque style. The San Miniato al Monte basilic is built between the 11th and 13th centuries and contains fine artworks such as the chapel of the "Crucifixion" by Michelozzo and the chapel of the Cardinal of Portugal both decorated by Luca della Robbia and the splendid frescoes by Spinello Aretino, depicting "Scenes from the Life of St. Benedict".
