This building has a lot of history, but if time is tight, I would consider seeing some of the other sights Milan as to offer. Staff were friendly. Many locals enjoying the sunshine in the front courtyard, when we visited.

Right beside the Archaeological musem of Milano, you won't even notice that church. Once you enter the door surprises will never end, the art Milano is sometimes hiding will be disclosed to you in its magnificence.

From the street, one couldn't guess the treasure this church is. It is separated into 2 parts (since it was part of an abbey and the nuns had a space separated from the wordly crowd in the same church). It was recently restored (the restoration is still going on) and the ceilings and the paintings are truly spectacular.

Chiesa di San Maurizio has old Roman walls surrounding the original medieval buildings giving a real strong sense of the history of Milan. Beautiful stained glass in the church, too.

This highly recommended church does not disappoint. With the modest front you are surprised by the beautiful frescoes inside. The church is divided into two, one for the public and a hidden backroom for the nuns, access via the museum to the right. The hidden area was absolutely the most interesting part. Free entrance and a great break from a... More
