Behind this beautifulchurch lies a humble refectory, home to one of the most famous religious paintingsin the world.

Santa Maria Delle Grazie is best known for housing one of the mostimportant works of art in history, Leonardo Da Vinci’s The Last Supper. Thiscavernous church is one of the most revered cultural sites in Italy, as recognizedby its identification as a World Heritage Site. The Last Supper is housedin the church refectory.

The 15th-century painting draws visitors from around theworld. Many are surprised by its large size: 180inches by350inches (460centimeters by880centimeters). When the church was bombed during World War II, the mural narrowly escaped unscathed, thanks to sandbags used toprotect it. The church and convent are remarkable examples of Renaissancearchitecture.
