The church is a little bit dark, but still you can see the wonderful frescos around. It is barock from the 15th century.

If you are in the area, this is worth a visit. Although dimly lit, the frescoes are beautiful. We arrived during a mass which was worth hearing as well. The monastery was not open (only twice a year).

This is a very interesting Baroque church which dates to the late 15th century. It owes its visual riches to blessing a Sforza marriage. The place has a wonderful atmosphere of silence. I am not a fan of Baroque church architecture and decoration in Italy, but this one works. The 17th century frescoes are of an especially high quality and were quite fun to slowly take in. The paintings are also quite good, although we were there late in the day, the lighting is poor and many of the canvases could use a cleaning. The church is run by an order of silent nuns whose monastery is open to the public only twice a year. But the church is well worth a stop.
