The convent was founded in the 13th century and was enlarged in 1437 by the architect Michelozzo, when Dominican monks from nearby Fiesole moved there invited by Cosimo the Elder who financed the whole rebuilt of the convent with a large sum of money. Consacreted in 1443, this building hosted personalities like S. Antonino Pierozzi, Bishop of Florence, Beato Angelico and later Girolamo Savonarola. Opened to the public in 1869, after long structural and fresco restoration projects, the Museum of San Marco houses the largest collection of sacred art in Florence.
