This cathedral is considered the main attraction of Milan. The magnificent Santa Maria Nascente Cathedral is located right in the center of the city. This is one of the largest Gothic churches in the world. Its height is 157 meters, and the width of the cathedral is 92 meters. The construction of the cathedral was started in the XIV century, and it was completed only several centuries later, in the XIX century. The cathedral amazes its visitors not only by its fantastic façade, but also by the decoration of its inner premises. Several mausoleums, a bronze 5 meter tall candlestick, magnificent choirs, stained glass windows of the XVI century - the list of objects worth attention is really long. The roof of the building features spectacular views of Milan.
In contrast to the cathedral, the construction of Santa Maria delle Grazie Church lasted only a quarter of a century. The church, which was constructed in the XV century, is known as one of the most beautiful churches of the Renaissance style in Milan. Santa Maria delle Grazie has an adjacent monastery. This monastery is widely known because of one fact - Leonardo da Vinci's "Last Supper" fresco. The fresco is located in the former refectory of the monastery. The great work of art was severely damaged several times. It has undergone multiple restorations, so today the access to the masterpiece is limited. An entrance ticket to the monastery is not easy to buy, so it is recommended to reserve it at least two days before your visit.
