Photographer's Note

This is the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie (translated as Holy Mary of Graces) in Milan. The nearest underground station is Cadorna.

This building is listed as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, notwithstanding its position as one of the finest examples of Lombard Reinassance architecture - it also houses Leonardo Da Vinci's world famous 'The Last Supper'.

The courtyard in the foreground oozes a feeling of tranquil calm.

If you are visiting Milan this year, you must add this to your list of places to visit. Another reason is in an chapel adjoining this courtyard. Here is an exhibition showing various pages of 'Codex Atlanticus' - an atlas and encyclopedia written and drawn by Da Vinci.

Buon divertimento! :-)
