Church of St. Maria delle Grazie – The secret burrow

0
Ludovico il Moro chose the Church of St. Maria delle Grazie as a burial place for all the Sforza family members. Beatrice d'Este was buried here in 1497. According to the legend, Ludovico il Moro ordered the construction of a burrow that connected the church to Sforzesco Castle to allow him to go and pray at his wife's grave without being noticed.
