Concierge.com's insider take:
A testament to the work of painter–monk Fra Angelico, this museum is housed in the Dominican convent of San Marco. Fra Angelico was arguably the most spiritual artist of the 15th century, and his paintings can be seen in the setting for which they were intended. One of his most famous works, the Annunciation, is at the top of the main stairs on the first floor, while his great Last Judgment altarpiece is in the Pilgrim's Hospice. He also painted the frescoes in the corners of the cloister of Sant Antonio and, with the help of various assistants, those in the small monk's cells.
