Description

For art lovers and history buffs alike, Cappella Brancacci, in Santa Maria del Carmine, is highly recommended. This intimate and atmospheric chapel is home to the outstanding Renaissance frescoes by Masaccio and Masolino. Admire the vivid colors and intricate details with an innovative video guide. These strictly limited tickets are exclusive to Tiqets!

The intimate Brancacci Chapel has limited capacity (just six people a day), but this ticket gets you skip the line access, plus a video guide, so you can admire the magnificent frescoes up close. Through the short (but impactful) visit, you'll enjoy the info and insights from your included video guide.

The two layers of frescoes, commissioned in 1424 by a wealthy Florentine merchant, illustrate the life of St. Peter. The colors are still vibrant, thanks to the then cutting-edge techniques of artists Masolino, Masaccio, and Lippi.

It’s considered a miracle that the Brancacci Chapel survived the fire of 1771, which destroyed the rest of the Santa Maria del Carmine church in under 4 hours. Don't let that miracle be all for nothing - get into this chapel and soak up some early Renaissance poetry in paint.

Amazing frescoes. Well worth seeing.

A capela é linda, bem restaurada e com boa iluminação. A disponibilidade do "tablet" com as informações gravadas foi de grande auxílio, uma verdadeira aula de história da arte, com apensos de questões teológicas do catolicismo.
