T he Convent of San Marco along with its art collection make up the Museum San Marco. The convent was founded in the 13th century and enlarged in 1437. The majority of the paintings are by the Dominican friar, Fra Angelico. They are devotional frescos. When I was there, there were many school children copying the frescos. Picture taking was discouraged. Girolamo Savonarola was also a resident.
Photography was not allowed. I took several pictures but did not use a flash.
