You should see it.

It's not impresive from outside but it is impresive from inside ! Definately worth seeing ! As far as I remember it was for free.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when we entered this quaint church, free, donations gratefully accepted, but I loved what I saw. Now I am the farthest person from an art afficianado but I enjoyed viewing these many frescoes as much as "The Last Supper". Perhaps more. Despite being a noted attraction it was not at all crowded... More

We were glad our guide took us for a visit to this beautiful church not far from the Last Supper site. This church is considered the Sistine Chapel of Milan as it contains a lot of wonderful frescoes done mostly by the Luini family, associates of Da Vinci. The frescoes depicted scenes from the bible and the lives of the... More

We walked to this little church on our way to Castello Sforzesco. We spent more than an hour looking to amazingly detailed frescoes. We even bought a book in Italian!

The facade of this great church is very deceiving. I would have just walked past it, if I hadn't peaked inside. The frescos are just gorgeous and painted by some great Renaissance painters. Every square inch of this place is just divine and worth looking at. Take your time and admire all the works. It's a shame that there are... More

There are not very many seesights in Milano. This church is a very nice point what everyone should visit. Inside is very beautiful. Every wall was painted and the paintings are very fine. The roof was also painted. I have never seen such a church where else.

We were directed to this by a local gentleman who stressed the importance of it. It was not on our itinerary at all and didn't seem to be on many others but looking at the number of reviews here it's clearly better known than I thought! With all the frescoes it's a very colourful place and interesting due to being... More

after 3 months 'visiting' Milan, this is definitively the nicest church in Milan. Don't miss it! It's worth a visit

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
