Why visit the Medici Chapels

Why visit the Medici Chapels

The simplest answer to the question of why visit the Medici Chapels is that doing so will help you understand the history, a family, and an artist more clearly. With the Medici Chapel Tickets, you can see the grandeur of Michelangelo's work in the Medici Chapels, which are located behind the basilica of San Lorenzo. Along with sculptures and architectural embellishments, the museum displays the reliquaries and sacramental objects from the Basilica of San Lorenzo's Treasury, which are excellent examples of Renaissance and Baroque goldsmithing.

What To See In The Museum Of The Medici Chapels


The crypt is the final resting place for the grand dukes, and they are surrounded by vaults held up by pilasters made of pietra serena. The first thing you'll notice are the glass cases that contain pieces of the Treasure of San Lorenzo. The Grand Dukes of the Medici family, who ruled Italy from the 15th to the 18th centuries, commissioned these incredibly valuable reliquaries. They're crafted from precious metals and materials like rock crystal and silver. A large and stunning bronze statue of Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici greets visitors with Medici Chapel Tickets whenever they enter the crypt. A member of the last Medici dynasty, she left the state to her family's extensive art collection. The tomb of Cosimo the Elder, the first significant historical Medici figure created by Andrea del Verrochio, is also located in the crypt.

The Chapel of the Princes
The Chapel of the Princes

If you're looking for where the Medici are laid to rest, look no further than the Chapel of the Princes. There is no hiding the fact that this area is extravagant in comparison to the rest of the basilica, and thus tourists frequent it with their Medici Chapel Tickets. The power of Cosimo I's government was unquestioned. He aimed to have the opulence, power, and prestige of the Medici dynasty reflected in the chapel. The walls of the chapel are covered in a mosaic of semi precious and colorful stones. As a symbol of the enduring power of the Medici family, they must be both beautiful and timelessly functional, leaving no surface unadorned.

Michelangelo’s New Sacristy
Michelangelo’s New Sacristy

The New Sacristy, designed by Michelangelo and the last chapel to be visited on a tour of the Medici Chapels, is a stunning example of Renaissance architecture. Michelangelo was responsible for almost all of the chapel's design and decoration. As well as painting, he was supposed to work on frescoes before he headed off to Rome. Michelangelo deviated significantly from accepted norms of proportion in his design of the New Sacristy. He created a space with Mannerist elements, including unconventional layouts that riffed on classical motifs. Michelangelo paid special attention to the lighting in the chapel. The tomb sculptures are illuminated by natural light from the windows at the times of day that they represent.
