Leonardo da Vinci’s
The Last Supper 11
Why locals love it
Leonardo da Vinci painted The Last Supper in the refractory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie from 1494 to 1497. He was commissioned by Duke Ludovico Sforza. The mural was painstakingly restored over a twenty-one-year period from 1979 to 1999. It represents a well-known bible story of the same name.
Why you should visit it
The charm of this great mural continues to grow with the passing of time. Admiring it in person is quite an experience – it’s almost like seeing the Mona Lisa at the Louvre Museum in Paris!
