Cenacolo di Santa Apollonia -  Andrea del Castagno (1421 - 1457) c1450

 

Just round the corner from San Marco - Via XXVII Aprile 1.  Open 9 to 2 every day except Monday, entry free.  

 

There is not much more in the refectory of this old convent than this last supper by Castagno, another of the small number of geniuses who died young.  The convent was extensively decorated by him, but the works have mostly decayed or been knocked down.  It's a nice cool place to rest up for a bit, and entry is free.
