The painter Fra Angelico and the preacher Girolamo Savonarola lived at this 15th century church and convent once upon a time. Of the former, the museum hosts the world’s largest collection of his paintings. Furthermore, the convent library, built by Michelozzo, houses an incredibly precious collection of manuscripts.

  • A 17th century neo-classical façade.
  • Collection of 16th–17th century paintings. Of these,a 14th-century crucifix is most important.

  • The 16th-17th century Cloister of St. Antoninus, frescoed by Bernardino Poccetti, which is the entrance to the museum.
  • The San Marco Altarpiece
