Fodor's Review

The Umiliati owned this architectural hodgepodge of a church before the Franciscans took it over in the mid-16th century. (They were ousted in 2001, and replaced by the Benedictines, who moved out in 2003, only to be replaced, once again, by the Franciscans.) Beyond the fanciful baroque facade by Matteo Nigetti (1560–1649) are a couple of wonderful 15th-century gems. On the right in the nave is the Madonna della Misericordia by Ghirlandaio; a little farther down is Botticelli's St. Augustine in His Study. A companion piece, directly across the way, is Ghirlandaio's St. Jerome. Also check out the recently-restored (as of 2011) wooden crucifix by Giotto: the colors dazzle. Pass through the rather dreadfully frescoed cloister to view Ghirlandaio's superb Last Supper—which proves definitively that Leonardo da Vinci was not the only Tuscan painter who could do them well.
