Unlike the cathedral, the building works of St Maria delle Grazie Church lasted only 25 years, the church dates the 15th century and is one of the most beautiful churches of the Renaissance. Later to the church they added a cloister, the main point of interest in which is surely the fresco by Leonardo da Vinci - 'The Last Supper', located in the former refectory. This great work was damaged and restored for many times, that's why nowadays the access to the masterpiece is limited: the entrance ticket has to be reserved at least for two day before the visit.
Basilica of St Ambrogio.
Former episcope of Milan Ambrogio (the 4th century) is the patron of this city. The basilica that has his name is the oldest church in the city and is concerned to be the most beautiful due to its simplicity. The basilica is first of all famous for the sarcophagus of the Roman commander Stilico, the golden altar of the 9th century and the chapel St Vittore of the 5th century with golden mosaics under the cupola.
