Must-visit sights in Milan: The Last Supper at Cenacolo Vinciano
Situated in the historic center next to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the Museum Cenacolo Vinciano hosts one of the most celebrated art works of all time, The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Leonardo DaVinci’s painting was executed for his patron, the Duke of Milan, Ludovico Sforza. The painting represents the scene of Jesus’ last dinner and it’s based on the Gospel of John 13:21, where Jesus announces that he will be betrayed from one of his disciples. The masterpiece is 4.6 by 8.8 meters and it can be found in the refectory of the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie.
Leonardo started working on The Last Supper in 1465 and finished it in 1498. As you can imagine, it’s one of the most visited sights in Milan, in Italy and worldwide! So it’s mandatory to reserve tickets in advance.
