Cloisters of Santa Croce: Pazzi Chapel and Museum

Recommended
Two cloisters to the right of the church lead to the Pazzi Chapel and the Sante Croce museum. The first, running alongside the church aisle, has a closed gallery containing gravestones and tombs. It is separated by convent buildings from the great cloister on the upper storey, designed by Brunelleschi, but only completed in 1453, seven years after his death. Despite its location at the heart of a busy area, it is a veritable haven of peace and quiet.
