Santa Maria delle Grazie
It would be hard to find a site more steeped in history than the Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. The historic structure is not only an architectural masterpiece, but contains one of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper. The Dominican church and convent was built under order of the Duke of Milan, Francesco I Storza, in 1469 from a design by architect Guiniforte Solari. The lavishly ornate building was nearly destroyed during WWII by Allied bombs, but da Vinci’s iconic painting mysteriously remained unharmed.
