The Basilica of da Vinci's Last SupperThe Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is an impressive basilica famous for having one of the most famous paintings in the history of art and the world – Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper.
The painting is a prime tourist attraction, but the basilica itself is also worth the visit, as the basilica is a masterpiece of the famous Renaissance architect Donato Bramante. While its interior is full of bright lights and constitutes a real triumph of harmony, on the outside, it is gently carved. Its nave was built in a Gothic style.
The impressive dome built above the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is also one of the finest works of the Italian Renaissance. All these made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
