It is a palace but it is shaped like a castle and it is one of the most representative images of Florence. The entrance to the Old Palace is flanked by a copy of the statue of David by Michelangelo and Hécues and Caco by Baccio Bandinelli.

During the visit you can see the first sculptures of Michelangelo, such as the 'Bacco', the 'Tondo Pinti' or the 'David-Apolo', as well as works by Donatello, Brunelleschi or Michelangelo.
In addition to invaluable sculptures, Palazzo Bargello has a huge collection of Roman, Byzantine and medieval pieces, with jewels, enamels, ceramics, weapons and instruments.
Another attraction of this museum is the building itself, a fortress built in 1255, which was first the mayor's house and later a prison (in the 16th century). Just to admire the interior of the palace, it is worth the visit.
