Best religious site I saw in Milan

This was my favorite church on the trip. The nun's chapel is stunning - so colorful and captivating. Definitely don't miss this!

Always nice to visit a church for free to feel history. Next to the last supper so an ideal moment to take some time for visiting this church and think about the fact Leonardo Da Vinci has seen the same as you do.

This very old and beautiful church was built over a preexisting church of Benedectine Nuns in 1503 . It is situated very near to piazza del Duomo, and it is really worth a visit ,especially for those people who , unfortunately, don't have much time to spend in this amazing city . The facade is in grey stone, and once... More

In this church, there are a lot of pictures about bible's story. If you understand the story, then it will be more respect you can give for this church because the stories are a lot painted in the interior. Definitely one of the highlight in Milan (after Duomo of course...)

Probably one of the most impressive things to see in Milan. Can imagine peasants gazing up at these glorious biblical images and truly feeling that they were in the presence of something magical (before the invention of TV of course).

Only popped in on passing and wouldn't say I am in any way an art person but this little church is very impressive with it's wall to wall art pieces and definitely worth a look!

It's Indeed the Sistine chapel of Milan. In fact I enjoy Chiesa di San Maurizio more as it is less crowded, allowing me to take my time to admire all the amazing frescos, with clear view free of crowd. Not to be missed!

This should be number two on your things to see list in Milan, given the cost (free) and the time required to see it well (about an hour). Well worth making sure this is on your walk around tour of the central area of Milan.

Not a major attraction in Milan, but one of my favourite churches in Milan. In the cappella frescoed by Bernardino Luini among best concerts of ancient music are performed. Look for one.
