“Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

This place is a small hidden jewel located near then Milan Cathedral. There is no entrance fee, except for the archeological museum. However, the main part is the church itself, including many very nice paintings everywhere on the walls and the roofs. I would recommend that place as a top attraction in Milan.

“scaffolding”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

missed the best bits of this Church due to refurbishment. What we could see was excellent. Only 3 star, but having seen photos of it without the scaffold, it is probably a 5 star visit. Just be warned and check in advance.

“The reviews are overblown.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Typical of the underdog that everyone roots for, this church is good enough to be raved about but if you thought it was the best thong to see in Milan, you would be mistaken.

“Small but pretty ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

You wouldn't expect it from the outside, but the church is very pretty and light on the inside. It has a nice ceiling and beautiful paintings.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

I thought this place was interesting. There are many beautiful paintings, but by the way the artist paints the hands, you can see that it is not a world-class artist. Still, I am happy getting to see this place. It's for free as well.
One thing though. I am a Christian and for me it seems there are many things in here that had nothing to do with the bible.
But still worth a visit.
