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.

Our insider tips

Book in Advance for Last Supper

If you want to see The Last Supper, it's necessary to reserve tickets ahead of time. Visits are limited to 15-minute viewing slots. Tickets sell out fast, so you should plan well in advance – in the high season, for example, they sometimes sell out 3 months in advance!

Access the Cloister Any Time

As mentioned above, the cloister is a lovely spot to take a break and renew your energies. If you want to visit the cloister but mass is ongoing, don't worry, you can also access the cloister from a side door at the back of the church.

Wonderful walking tour of local historical attractions

Wonderful walking tour of a few of the local historical attractions in Milan. Our guide was very knowledgable and passionate about art and history - especially the last supper painting. Wireless earphones were great for being able to hear our guide no matter how far away we were. Learned a lot more about the attractions than if we would have went alone.

A wonderful experience to see one of the most iconic paintings.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative and spoke very clearly in English. She had good humour and used it at the correct times. We were very pleased with our visit but the feeling amongst our group was that it was somewhat overpriced as the normal entrance fee was only 12 euros. Nevertheless thank you.
