Капелла Медичи — мемориальная часовня рода Медичи при флорентийской церкви Сан-Лоренцо. Её скульптурное убранство входит в число наиболее грандиозных свершений Микеланджело Буонарроти и Позднего Возрождения в целом.
Микеланджело прибыл во Флоренцию в 1514 году, поскольку папа римский Лев Х Медичи предложил ему создать новый фасад для местной церкви Сан-Лоренцо, семейного храма влиятельной семьи Медичи. Этот фасад должен был стать «зеркалом всей Италии», воплощением лучших черт мастерства итальянских художников и свидетелем могущества рода Медичи. Но долгие месяцы раздумий, проектные решения, пребывание самого Микеланджело в мраморных карьерах оказались напрасными. На реализацию грандиозного фасада не хватило денег — и проект сошел на нет после смерти папы.

Glorious even under restoration. Separate ticket from the Basilica (which is not that interesting - unless you’re very into reliquaries). This is Michaelangelo’s other masterpiece. Less crowded than the galleria so a good place to start.

One of the lesser known gems in Florence! The main chapel is a glorious example of architecture and a lot quieter than the Duomo. There is some construction work on foot currently but still worth the visit.

The church itself is 15th century and designed by Brunelleschi. The Chapels have a separate entrance to the church. Entry is via the crypt (at street level) where numerous Medici are buried. There is currently a display of relics of various Saints in reliquaries. It seems several of the Medici collected them, one having 600. The first chapel was the New Sacristy, built to balance the "old" Sacristy on the other side of San Lorenzo. It was intended to be the mausoleum for some the Medici. It was the first architectural work of Michelangelo (1519-24). It has a square floor plan, surmounted by a dome of pietra serena (grey sandstone) and whitewashed walls. Michelangelo also designed the magnificent funerary monuments of Lorenzo di Piero, (Duke of Urbino) and Giuliano di Lorenzo (Duke of Nemours), both of whom were relatively minor Medici. Their tombs have reclining sculptural figures of the four times of the day (Night and Day, Dusk and Dawn). There were to be four Medici tombs, but after Michelangelo was called away in 1534 those of Lorenzo the Magnificent and his brother Giuliano were never begun. They were buried in a simple chest-shaped sarcophagus, which Vasari later adorned with three sculptures including Michelangelo's "Madonna and Child". From the simple architectural elegance of the New Sacristy you pass into the multicoloured marble splendour of the Chapel of the Princes. It's big. It is octagonal in shape with a 59 metre high dome which is the external defining feature of the church as a whole. The walls and floor are covered in "pietre dure" (effectively multicoloured stone marquetry) . There are six huge porphyry and grey granite sarcophagi which are, in fact, cenotaphs (the Medici are all buried in the crypt). Above each there was meant to be a statue, however, there are only two. Part of the chapel is covered in scaffolding. In 1999 one of the keystones fell and they are slowly working to ensure that everything is stable and safe. 8€ entry was reasonable. Not crowded and no queues.

Wonderful place. I suggest to visit it with a guide 'cause it's a place full of history and hidden significations, which you couldn't appreciate alone

Most delicious food we found in Florence! Found it by chance one evening then came back the next day. Between me and my husband we tried 9 menu items over two visits. Everything we had was amazing, fresh ingredients, friendly staff, great drink selection and patio seating with mist sprays. Our visits were extremely enjoyable.

The Medici chapel is inexpensive and easily overlooked by visitors to the city. The chapel is absolutely beautiful and has amazing examples of art from greats such as Michelangelo. The first Sunday of every month, entry is free of charge.

Beautiful church from medieval ages. Simple brick construction. There is a nice chapel Medici inside. The chapel is an extension of great church built by Brunelleschi. The sagrestia nuova - designed by Michelangelo - is a mausoleum and mortuary chapel of family Medici. The construction was finished at 1555. The octagonal capella dei Principi is 59 meters high. Well decorated chapel. They started to build in XVII. century. The design was common, architects and the Medici family.

We went on the first Sunday of the month and the entry was free, but it would have been worth paying. Downstairs in the crypt are simple tombs of members of the Medici family, while upstairs the Grand Dukes are buried in the most amazing chapel decorated entirely in marble of all colours. It will be really amazing once the restorations are complete. Behind this is the burial chapel of Lorenzo Medici, decorated in statutes begun by Michelangelo before he was called to Rome by the pope.

So so awesome. Say what you want about the Medicee, they had good taste in architecture and art.

An hidden treasure! Only going inside you can see how beautiful this chapel is. With an high ceiling, full of marble, a lot of statues, some scratches made by Leonardo DaVinci... please get in and enjoy.

Small chapel which can be done in 45 min. Contains tomb of medicis. Behind the main altar in the 2nd floor has small alcoves which has regalia of 2 previous pope which is maintained very well. As the chapel was built with technologies during their time, some restoration work is being done.

One of the places of significance in the Medici history. The ground floor features a number of historical artefacts and art pieces. While some context is presented in both English and Italian, it is extremely brief, and the significance of the objects barely explained. As such, the experience was unmemorable. The first floor proved to be more interesting, however. It is hard to miss the chapel of Princes with the striking dark marble interior and the size of the space. One can also observe the busts of the Medicis. At the far end of the hall, there are two small rooms featuring some impressive pieces. The new sacristy is also located on this floor, where unfinished works by Michelangelo are featured and where some of the Medici family are buried. Overall, the cappelle Medici could do with more information about the place. If one is unfamiliar with the history of the Medicis, it might be worthwhile to visit other places before going to this one, and compared to the others, can be skipped if one is tight on time.

Main highlight was the elaborate and massive funerary coffins. The colours and grandeur were overwhelming - after just having been in Rome, that is saying something.
Anastasia Harputlu | июль 22, 2018
It’s worth seeing, but I have expected to see more. The stuff is somehow unfriendly, looks like they are tired from the tourists. The half of Museum is occupied by a modern art exhibition. What is also disappointing, you should buy two separate tickets for the cathedral and chapel.
