“For fans of churches only”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you love churches, history and wonderful painted frescos, then you'll love this church. The claim to fame of this church is the large number of frescos. If you're not too bothered about churches, then you'll be in and out in a few minutes. The choice is yours!

“Beautiful, free and quick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

A gorgeous example of a renaissance chapel divided into two areas, originally for the nuns one side and lay people the other. There has clearly been plenty or conservation and renovation, but all done sensitively and looking like it will last. Because there isn't too much to see, unless you're a renaissance scholar, you could take children and they wouldn't get too bored. When we went, it was also free to get into the museum next door, which includes a Roman tower (originally part of the hippodrome) that survived as part of the old town walls for 2000 years. There are three floors of other museum exhibits, too, with text in English and Italian.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

i agree with others a great church to visit. a surprise when you duck around the side to the back half. very good and worth a visit. 5 mins along the road from the last supper venue next to delle grazie church.

“The exterior doesn't reflects it's interior.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

One should not let the church's exterior play a central role in the decision to visit it. The interior is a masterpiece of italian's gothic-renaissance. It's afrescoes are very well conserved and are extremely beautifull. Worth the visit.
