In the refectory of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, ancient premises of the Court of the Inquisition, one of the absolute masterpieces of history which opened a new era for art: Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. The Duke of Milan Francesco I Sforza ordered the building that was completed in the 15th century.

The main architect was Guiniforte Solari, while the design of the apse of the church has been attributed to Donato Bramante. In 1543, the Holy Crown chapel on the right of the nave, received a painting by Titian, depicting the Christ receives the Crown of Thorns. This chapel is frescoed with Stories of the Passion by Gaudenzio Ferrari. In the small cloister adjacent to the tribune near the door that leads to the sacristy is a fresco by Bramantino.
