The cells of the monks are spartan and decorated with simple, elegant, serene, frescoes by Fra Angelico. Paintings by him also are shown on the ground floor. The facial expressions in these are among the most moving in Florentine paintings of the 15th c. A must see in Florence, more enjoyable and relaxing than the Uffizi. Come near opening time at 815am to enjoy the church and museum in tranquillity.
