Medici Chapels

The Medici Chapel is breathtaking. We enjoyed watching people's jaws drop when they first entered.

The interior dome is two stories tall and is basically all stone, gilding, and the occasional painting.

The same motifs are repeated on the walls and the floor. 

The New Sacristy was designed by Michelangelo and contains some of his work but he did not complete it. It was refreshing to see a statue of a woman who wasn’t a mythical figure.
