Two immortal names, Leonardo da Vinci and Donato Bramante, have made this church eternally famous. The church stands in the square of the same name. It was built between 1466 and 1490 to plans by Guiniforte Solari, but a few years later Ludovico il Moro commissioned Bramante to redesign the apse, which has a splendid "tribune", a fine example of the Renaissance use of space. Bramante also designed the cloister and the old sacristy. Leonardo da Vinci's famous "Last Supper" is on one of the walls of the old Dominican monastery refectory. He began work on the fresco in 1495, and finished it in 1498. As soon as you know when you are going to be in Milan, book a visit: at certain times of year it is hard to find slots even a week ahead.
