San Marco

Build with the money of Cosimo the Elder of the Medici this monastery confirmed de facto the northern part of the city as the Medici territory. Deeply interwoven with the historic and cultural revolution happening in the mid-fifteenth century, this Early Renaissance complex hosts a museum dedicated almost entirely to the painter-friar Beato Angelico, who mediates between the innovations of art and his quiet spirit of devotion. Fourty years later the Last Supper by Domenico Ghirlandaio was frescoed here and  sixty years later this place would be again central to art history with the activity of Fra Bartolomeo.

Additional Infos

San Marco is open only in the morning on weekdays and closes on some Mondays and some Sundays in the month (I know, it's a bit chaotic).

Thankfully though it's generally a very quiet place, away from the big crowds you find at the Uffizi or just next door at the Accademia.
