The church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is one of the loveliest monuments from the Renaissance in Lombardia. Built from 1466-1490 by architect Guiniforte Solari, in 1492 Donato Bramante added the apse. The interior measures 63m x 30m, including chapels, and at the center is 14.4m high. Decorations and statues of saints in the three naves are attributed to Butinone, Zenale, Montorfano and Bergognone, masters of the Lombard school. The church is known throughout the world for housing Leonardo da Vinci’s famed Last Supper, which appears on a wall of what had once been a dining hall in the adjacent Dominican monastery. The monastery also boasts three cloisters, the most beautiful of which (square in shape) is considered the work of Bramante. The Old Sacristy is also worth visiting.
