-
Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan

Work at the Santa Maria delle Grazie was probably begun in the early 1490s and was continued all through the 1490s. Externally, the building consists of a long, rather low, nave and aisles, built by another architect. Bramante added the tribune to the east end of the large church. Bramante left it incomplete when he went to Rome.
