Architectural description
Architectural type Church

Santo Stefano al Ponte is a church in Florence, Italy.

The church was originally constructed in the 11th and 12th century in a Romanesque style with a polychrome marble facade. The interior featured three aisles. In the 14th century, the exterior was renovated. Of the original facade, only the marble work around the portal remains. Between 1631 and 1655, the interior of the church was renovated to convert the three aisles to an open hall. A crypt was added and the interior was redesigned to include a choir.[1]

The annexed Diocesan Museum houses a panel with a Madonna by Giotto.
