Church of Santa Maria del Carmine and Brancacci Chapel

Highly recommended
The main focus of interest in Florence's Carmelite church (damaged by fire in the 18C) is an extraordinary series of frescoes decorating the walls of the Brancacci Chapel, situated at the end of the south transept (which luckily survived the fire). Depicting Original Sin and the Life of St Peter, they are the work of three different artists. But it is the contribution of Masaccio, a pupil of Masolino, which makes the chapel so renowned.
