Description

Before entering San Marco Museum, admire the statuesque exterior. The building comprises of a church and a 15th century Dominican convent, with the latter considered one of the most distinguished examples of Florentine architecture. The convent, where the Dominican monks still live, was commissioned by Cosimo I de 'Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany, and renovated by Michelozzo — one of the greatest architects of the Renaissance. Visit the elegant Cloister of St. Anthony. Admire the age-old doors decorated with stunning frescoes before continuing on to an ancient hall filled with works by the Dominican monk Beato Angelico, one of the greatest exponents of the Florentine Renaissance. You’ll also visit the cell where the famous friar Girolamo Savonarola lived. A passionate speaker, Savonarola preached against the corruption and decay of morals of the clergy, ending his life hanged and burned at the stake in Piazza della Signoria. Explore the Great Refectory, the old kitchen and the services areas, which display the paintings of Fra Bartolomeo, another important painter and Dominican monk who lived in the convent in the early 16th century.
