Santa Maria delle Grazie (Milan)

Santa Maria delle Grazie is a church and Dominican convent in Milan which is mostly famous for the mural painting "The Last Supper" by Leonardo da Vinci. The church was built between 1466 and 1490. During the WW II, bombs attacked this church but the mural was survived! In 1980, the architecture complex was added into the list of world cultural heritages by UNESCO.  
Many thanks to Giada from Milan for sending me these awesome postcards for my UNESCO collections (also the great stamps)! :) The postmarks read "Milano Borromeo CMP", one of the sorting centers in Italy also the only one international exchange center of the country.
