We went there out of curiosity - we wanted to find out for ourselves why so many people rated this church as excellent. In the moment one part of the chapel in the front is under restoration, so one cannot see everything. The visitors are compensated for this: the entry is free now. But the small building site did not... More

This quaint church may look a little underwhelming from the outside but the frescos inside make it probably one of the most impressive historical sites to visit in Milan. It's a little hard to find but very nearby the Duomo, the locals we asked were more than happy to help.

We visited this little church on our visit to Milan and it was fabulous. The nave area of the church is full of religious frescos which one of the guides kindly explained to us the symbolism and how they were painted by the school of Da Vinci. It was so lovely to sit in this peaceful church and just admire... More

Wonderful little place. The inside is covered in fresco's and well worth a visit. Its tucked away in Milan not easy to find unless you have a map or the trip advisor city guide app for the GPS mapping will point you in the right direction! It is free to get in, but be warned its not very big. Its... More

Stopped in here after viewing The Last Supper. Both were the best part of our visit to Milan. Amazing artwork with short descriptions that are also in english

Amazing church a lit bit of art, religion, politics, history and mystic! You have to sides one the main door (nuns church) and the second part you have to go in the historical museum (next door) to see the politician church. Amazing really you should see it!

Nice walk from the Duomo. Vivid depictions and art work. Know very little of the history but enjoyed viewing it. There is also some archeological objects outside the front entrance.

We found this place by accident. We really wanted to see the Last Supper and all the "Skip the Line" tours were sold out except the Art Tour. We said why not try a little extra culture and we were glad we did. This place was AMAZING. Our guide Charles through VIATOR tours was very informative and enthusiastic about all... More
