Not to be missed are the refectory and the cloister. The first, from the 15th century, is frescoed by a priceless Last Supper by Ghirlandaio, a work that was also mentioned by Vasari. The cloister, on the other hand, is a classic example of the local mid-15th-century architecture: the interior walls are decorated by Scenes from the Life of St. Benedict, painted by Filippo di Antonio Filippelli.
The monastery’s church, built in the mid-13th century, is dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. Its current appearance is mostly attributable to alterations of the 16th century. The building’s Latin cross plan has been interrupted by the presence of a cleverly inlaid monastic choir; at the sides and at the bottom of the building there are several chapels. The main chapel is the one dedicated to St. Michele the Archangel, where there are frescoes and paintings by Passignano, while another of interest is dedicated to Saint Giovanni Gualberto. It is here that the tomb of the saint, founder of the Vallombrosan order, is located.
