Outside the city center of Milan, to the northwest, there is a church and Dominican convent called the Santa Maria delle Grazie, meaning Our Lady of Grace. Inside the refectory of the convent, along the back wall, you will find one of the most famous murals in the world – the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. In Italian, the name for the painting is Cenacolo Vinciano. In order to preserve the mural as safely as possible, the city turned the refectory itself into a museum, called the Cenacolo Vinciano Museum.
It is 15 feet tall and 29 feet long and da Vinci completed it over a period of three years, from 1495 to 1498. Today, every effort is made to keep the refectory climate controlled in order to protect the mural. For this very reason, only 25 people at a time are allowed in to see it.
