5 Reasons to Visit Santa Maria Delle Grazie

Mainly known as the home of Leonardo Da Vinci's world-famous The Last Supper, Santa Maria Delle Grazie in Milan is a magnificent church and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here are 5 reasons to visit this stunning and eclectic hybrid of architectural styles.

Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper

Few paintings are as iconic as Da Vinci's 15th century mural. Though nearly destroyed on many occasions, thanks to a recent restoration, it can now be admired in all its splendor.

The Facade

The exterior demonstrates the church's mix of architectural styles: while the sober terracota facade exemplifies the Lombard tradition, the lavish entrance is in Renaissance style.

The Nave

The central nave and the adjacent aisles, with their highly ornate and exquisitely frescoed arches, are splendid examples of Late Gothic architecture.

The Dome

Designed by the eminent Renaissance architect Donato Bramante, this remarkable dome is camouflaged on the outside – its hemisphere is only apparent from the church's interior.

The Cloister of Frogs

The lovely garden of this inner cloister, named after the statues that spout water into the fountain, is ideal for a picturesque breather from the bustle of Milan.

What People Are Saying About Santa Maria delle Grazie

Great way to see Last Supper and Milan city tour.

We really enjoyed our guided tour of the last supper with our guide who made everything interesting and went out of her way to make sure that everyone's needs were catered for in viewing the Last Supper. She then took us on an extended walk through the Sforza Castle and grounds and into the city centre. We would definitely recommend this way of exploring Milan.

Inspirational, informative, spiritual, breathtaking.

The tour was well organised and there was no queuing. The guide was very informative and the Last Supper itself was inspirational,, spiritual and breathtaking. We were allowed enough time to really study the picture and take it in.

Marvellous hidden treasures of Milan and ending with The Last Supper!

I am not a fan of organised tours, however, felt this was lovely, exactly as wanted to see a few sights that we wouldn't see otherwise and culminating in the ultimate treasure that is The Last Supper. The guide was really informative and just very lovely. Good value and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Thr Last Supper fast access was worth the cost

The Last Supper was impressive and the walking tour very informative. Disappointed we did not actually get to go to La Scala theatre even if only to see the entrance.
