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.

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.

San Maurizio is located on elegant Corso Magenta. The site is built on an ancient Roman site, being part of the old city walls of Mediolanum. Part of this is exposed in the adjacent courtyard which houses some Roman artifacts. The courtyard also provides access to the Archealogocal Museum (cover charge) The Church and Convent is essentially rectangular in shape, with the Church section being accessed from the Street. An extensively painted facade wall divides the Convent and Church, with the convent being accessed via a little doorway to the left of the altar. Look out for a small opening on the right of the altar, this is where communion was served to the Nun's from the Priest during sermons as it was forbidden for the Nuns to be part of the general congregation. Small, beautifully painted chapels are located along the sides many of which have been restored as a result of humidity problems. The staff here were very helpful and answered all my questions enthusiastically, the Milanese are very proud of this place. There is no charge for entry but please find the some change to make a donation to this beautiful place for ongoing preservation works.

This was a 'must see' having seen so many representations over the years and having read the DeVinchy Code! We took a guided tour and I could not help but be impressed by the history of the painting, as well as the actual painting itself. You have only a limited time in the actual room (15 minutes?) but it's such a historic painting that it must be seen.

I'm not an expert, so I went in, saw the paintings in the walls and ceiling and went out. Nothing more to see or do really.
