There is a church in Milan known by everybody, both locals and tourists. Nope, it is not the Duomo, but a basilica in Corso Magenta. It is Santa Maria delle Grazie, and its fame is mainly due to Leonardo’s masterpiece treasured within its walls: the Last Supper. We all have in mind this impressive painting; few, however, are aware of the other church treasure, Bramante’s cloister known as the Chiostro delle Rane, that is to say the Cloister of the Frogs. Well: it is time for you to know it!
