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.

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