  • This is one of the milestones for who can spend only a we in Milan. Is best known for the fresco by Leonardo da Vinci, the last supper, preserved within it, in the refectory. But that in itself is an imposing architectural work, Catholic religious emblem, the Church was included in the Unesco World Heritage List in 1980 because one of the greatest examples of Renaissance art.

  • We were here to look at ultima cena fresco. Second fresco is worth seeing. After a tour, you can go to the souvenir shop.  more »

  • Leonardo’s Last supper is magnificent and awe inspiring. Most don’t recognize that it is a mural that has gone through restoration. It is very impressive. But it’s really one of the two works to see at the site.
  • If you’ve got a small child, definitely take them to see the last supper. It’s a great way to annoy foreigners as they continually shush you, for a religious artifact people would do well to consider whether Jesus would have been so short tempered? 😀😀 Seriously though great experience, just the middle aged visitors who could at least consider that making 18 month old children be quiet is not easy!
  • The Last Supper is an extraordinary painting and really has to be seen in place to appreciate the skill of the artist - reprints do not do it justice. However, booking in advance (if you're not part of a tour) is vital. And a word of caution - do not go looking for the painting around the large brick church. There is plenty to see in there and there are regular services. But the Last Supper fresco is in the refectoy of the old convent, which is a painted plaster-fronted building to the side of the main church entrance.
  • A piece of history in the center of milano. I like small and warm, i definally recommend goin to this church.
  • Last Supper is of course very good. But the site is also pretty well managed
