Peace & Silence for All Saint’s Day


Let’s open a door to peace & silence for this All Saints' weekend. 
In Florence I visited Museo di San Marco. It used to be a convent and the visitor could enter 
the monks’ small chambers or cells on the 1st floor. They were similar, maybe 10 m2, each chamber had a slightly different beautiful fresco on the wall and the window to the outer world 
was really small. For me it was wonderful to step back in time and imagine the monks’ 
silent and simple life in the 15th century and later.



On the 1st floor there was also the convent’s library. The hall was big and beautiful 
showing under glas heavy illustrated manuscripts written by hand by the monks.



The inner courtyard was peaceful & silent, surrounded by archways.




Museo di San Marco is well worth visiting,
it is situated close to Accademia Gallery and Duomo.


Wishing you all a peaceful All Saints’ Day!

  8. Ein wunderschönes Gebäude und besonders die kleinen einfachen Räume (Zellen) sprechen mich an. Diese Bescheidenheit ermöglicht, sich auf das Wesentliche zu konzentrieren, die innere Ruhe zu finden.
    Große gotische oder barocke Kirchen sind zum Ansehen wunderbar, aber lenken durch ihre Pracht ab.

    Liebe Grüße und einen angenehmen Sonntag wünscht
