There are frescos and murals covering every surface-it's awe inspiring. They are the work of only a few different artists. Fascinating to look at them closely and see the differences between them in style (and ability): from da Vinci inspired elegant naturalism to the more crude and simplistic lesser painters. But taken all together, the overall effect is astonishing in... More

This is a very fine church w interesting architecture and excellent art of the 16th century. Restoration is substantial, much of it good, some a bit lacking. Lots of detail and church provides good guide as to contents and art. Historical organ. Also archaeological museum which I did not have time to see. Close to Last Supper.

This church/monastery is unassuming on the outside. Don't miss this opportunity to to see the decorative 16th century Milanese paintings. The church has three parts, the museum, the cloister and the sanctuary. The colors are still very vibrant, walls and ceiling are completely covered with frescos. They are closed on Mondays, free entry into the sanctuary and cloister but there... More

This church is so beautiful. The paintings are so detailed and well crafted. I walked past this church many times unknowing what was inside. I was amazed once I walked in. Go visit!

A beautiful church, the walls are painted with beautiful artwork, it was amazing and unexpected. This church deserves more people to marvel at its beauty. Entry is free so there is no excuse not to go to this church. There is also a museum next door which is surprisingly large and only cost 3 euros for students, it's well worth... More

It might look a bit humble from the outside but this church hides beautiful frescoes inside - all over the wall, ceilings and columns. During our visit the church is under reconstruction, visitation is free - but please drop a donation for preserving the frescoes and the building. The highlight for me is the giant pipe organ and the separated... More
