Enjoyed the Last Supper mural

We enjoyed the last supper mural in this small site. It can be visited for free and has other murals / artwork for viewing also.

The description is wrong. The Last Supper is by Andrea del Castagno. It cannot be 'by Cenacolo' as 'cenacolo' is a cenacle (from Latin cenaculum), also known as the "Upper Room", normally the dining room for monks :)

I stayed at a hotel that is not more than 20 steps from this convent. Unless you have a particular interest in the church and it's fresco(s), I would not make an exclusive trip to it. However, if you happen to walk the street before 1:30 (closing time), then its worth dropping in. It wasn't until my 3rd day in... More

Hidden in plain view on a prominant street in the center of Florence is a former convent refectory with a wonderful rendition of the "Last Supper" by Andrea del Castagno, along with some of his other works. There are very rarely more than a few visitors at one time, so that one can sit and admire these wonderful works of... More

This is a hidden gem. I could not believe that while we were here we only saw one other person. No entry fee but a donation is most welcome.

Not a lot of people visit this place (even if no fees is required): only a few frescos but one of this (the last supper) is from Andrea del Castagno, one of the firsts author of the renaissance. You can see his masterpieces only in Florence as he died very young. Since you will probably be alone, you can sit... More

We were the only ones there. Peaceful and quiet with a nice rendition of the last supper, i think it might even have been free to get in ....

This convent is located near the Piazza of San Marco, a couple of blocks away. It is located just outside of the touristic zone and at time of our visit, we were the only people inside. Here is a large hall on which at one end is a beautiful fresco by Andrea del Castagno of the Last Supper. Above it... More
