Pinacoteca di Brera
Step inside Pinacoteca di Brera, a historic 17th century palace, to see one of Italy’s most impressive collections of medieval and Renaissance artworks.
The Pinacoteca di Brera's star is The Dead Christ by Andrea Mantegna, a Renaissance/Mannerist excursion into weird perspective. You’ll also see works by Raphael, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Van Dyke.
The baroque Palazzo di Brera has a lovely neoclassical cloister lined with arches, and a suitably grand interior.
The Pinacoteca di Brera is north of the Duomo in the fashionable Brera district. The closest metro stops are Monte Napoleone and Lanza.
