More that expected!

If you love beautiful things that's the way to go! an absolute charming place with a lot of character. The art is very detailed and just another jewel on the streets of Milan.

This is a must see monastery and church! This Monastery has powerful frescoes of the nuns who lived there. The beautiful woods and the intricate details of the interior of the church are incredible! It is free. But you can leave a donation.

Perhaps Expo 2015 is a great show. But for better or worse our hype meter was turned up to maximum and we decided to just stay in Milan for our four days here and see the well beaten sites. But this former nunnery wasn't even on our radar. We just happened across it. The frescoes here are among the best... More

From the outside you'd never guess the church is full of some incredible frescoes. Entrance is free though donations can be made. While it might not have the "rock star" names behind the art the overall impact of the art is stunning. The other positive is that there are no ticket queues, tedious reservation websites or large tour groups with... More

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
