“small hidden gem”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

This is a very tiny church that if you not look for it you might end up passing by it and not even realizing it exists.


Inside it, you'll see it contain very amazing paintings and frescoes, and as there is no entrance fee, you can just walk around for a few minutes

“Frescoes on every wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Definitely worth popping into after lunch at the Bar Magenta nearby. Quite spectacular. Make sure you see the 'back half' of the church and the frescoes of Noah's flood.

“Nice place, quick visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We went to this church on a Monday since the stay.com app said it was open, however, very few tourist attractions are open on Mondays. We did go back the next day and were happy we did. Just as everyone else says, very beautiful art but I wouldn't say this is the top attraction in Milan. It's a small place and needs no more than an hour to look around, especially with kids.

“Beautiful Frescos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

Really beautiful frescos. A couple of them by the pupil of Leonardo da Vinci. One of the highlights of our Milano trip. Friendly volunteers explaining the frescos.

“Art enthusiasts and spiritual souls will appreciate this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

From the outside you would not expect what you are about to see... This miniature church in a quaint corner of Milan ushers you through its traditional entrance and opens up into a ceiling to floor adorned walls covered in religious art. Every inch of every wall is used as if artists canvas... It really is gorgeous. Free to come in, so why not considering you get to see some beautiful pieces of art.
