Stanza segreta di Michelangelo, Basilica di S.Lorenzo, Firenze, (Michelangelo’s Secret Room, St.Lorenzo Cathedral, Florence, Tuscany), Italy

Michelangelo Buonarroti hid himself for three months in a secret room under the sacristy of the St. Lorenzo Cathedral in Florence, because of the siege of the city by a Spanish army in 1529, and he drew on the walls to kill time. The charcoal drawings were rediscovered by chance in 1975. The room isn’t worth visiting for safety’s sake, but copies of these drawings are on show in the upper Cathedral, in the Bargello Museum and the Academy Gallery.
