This is a beautiful church with lovely painted frescoes. The seating in wood on both sides is very impressive as is the enormous organ on the wall. Go through the back into the nun’s walk and enjoy the experience.

Hi Freddyblu! Although the church of San Maurizio is still consecrated, masses are no longer being celebrated there. Nevertheless, you should visit the church to see its beautiful frescoes.
