  • See the frescoes and paintings by Fra Angelico, one of the Early Renaissance's most revered painters
  • See objects owned by Girolamo Savonarola - a Dominican friar and preacher - who lived in the building from 1489
  • Don't miss the hauntingly beautiful 44 monastic cells at the top of the stairs on the first floor

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.

We booked skip the line. There was no queue so when we arrived 15 mins before our allocated time we went straight in. I don’t know how much a conventional ticket would have cost.
The bottom line is that we had tickets and got in to see these fantastic paintings without any delay whatsoever
