History and description
The cloister was constructed by Bramante in the early years of the 16th century and nowadays functions as a cultural center and art gallery, with an emphasis on modern art.
Apart from the 1000 m2 of museum space, Bramante’s Cloister has a book shop and a cafe (and next to this cafe Raphael’s Sybil can be seen).
The Chiostro del Bramante also has an “Accademia dei Piccoli” for young children. Its aim is to teach children in a playful manner about art.
The top floor of the building also has 3 apartments for rent for tourists.
