An oasis of calm and peace in amongst the hurly burly of Florence. Marvellous frescos.Gives you a real sense of how the monks lived and how inspired they would have been by the fresco in their cell. Hope folk take time to admire Ghirlandaio's last supper in the refectory as well as Fra Angelico's work. Marvellous place to visit.

Florence is a beautiful city but after a while, seing so many beautiful museums can be exhausting. However this beautiful monetary was my favourite museum yet, because it is not a museum. There are about 30 cells in which Fra Angelico and his disciples painted beautiful frescos from the New Testament. The library is also very impressive. Do not miss this wonderful place.

Not as widely known as it should be but do go - the frescos painted by Fra Angelico are, simply, incredible.

The museum is located on the old Dominican convent of San Marco in Piazza San Marco. In this museum, we visited the Chapter Room, the Lavabo Room, the Refectory, the Cloister of the Spesa and a small cloister of the XV century. There are magnificent frescoes to look at, in particular the Annunciation fresco on top of the staircase leading to the dormitories. The library houses an important collection of medieval , Renaissance and illuminated books.
