My husband and I just happened by this on the way to another location and we were in awe. The interior is just mesmerizing. The paintings are gorgeous. And it was free!

This church was lovely and a surprise to see the paintings inside. Definitely worth the stop, though we got a little lost and ended up seeing another lovely church that morning as well. :) Make sure you see both parts - the front part and the hidden part. Ask for help if you aren't sure where to go.

We delayed our departure in order to visit this church and we don't regret. This small church has very beautiful paintings in both parts, the public and the monastery one. The visit do not take long but it is pure pleasure. We share completely the high rankig given by the community.

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.

Interesting but very small to see. Small church with beautiful paiting in there. Definitely ancient and in very good condition.
