Description

The renowned painter Fra' Angelico was a superstar of the Early Renaissance. It was here at the Chiesa di San Marco (and its adjoining 15th-century Dominican monastery) that he served God, along with firebrand preacher Girolamo Savonarola. See Angelico's most famous art and frescoes as you explore this 15th-century religious complex.

Fra' Angelico completed most of his work while being known as 'Il Beato' (The Blessed). He was named a saint in 1984 by Pope John Paul II. In the Museo di San Marco you'll see a range of his paintings, including the famed Deposition of Christ, and its realistic depiction of nature.

There are a number of stunning and significant frescoes here too - including Giovanni Antonio Sogliani's The Miraculous Supper of St Domenic and Fra' Angelico's Crucifixion and Saints in the former chapter house. The fresco Annunciation is Fra's most famous work here - and for good reason!

There are more religious reliefs and devotional frescoes in the cells, all of which are in stark contrast to the plain rooms that Savonarola - a Dominican friar and preacher - lived in from 1489 until he pushed the church too far and was hanged in the square.

See a few items once owned by the headstrong monk who fought fiercely against greed and luxury - including a marble monument constructed in 1873 by his admirers.

Interesting site. Away from the crowds. Well worth the money. Ordering process could not be easier.

Managed to book tickets the night before we decided to go. It’s a beautiful church and the museum with Fra Angelico’s frescoes were stunning!

The best, and easy to use. No frills or complications. However it would be useful to have cards on the table. i.e. the mark up on actual ticket price. As the lack of hassle makes it still worthwhile and the mark up compared to some is not so big that it need be hidden.

I was half an hour late and they were still kind enough to honor it!

A gem to see in the middle of the city of Florence! Very interesting to see how these priests lived and all the beautiful frescoes & paintings devoted to their lives & that of Jesus Christ!

The lines, this time, we’re not too bad. Who wants to spend needless time in lines on a European vacation?

The frescoes of Fra Angelico are magnificent and should be on anyone's list of things to see in Florence.
