“A Little Gem of a Church”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

This church isn't on the most of the main tourist lists, but it should be. It is covered in early Renaissance murals that have remained pretty vibrant. The church incorporates some old Roman architecture, too. The main sanctuary is small, but knowledgeable visitors know to look for the second larger sanctuary behind the back wall. There is also a civic and archeolagoical museum attached to this church.

“A must see treasure”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

We thorougly enjoyed our visit to this church and found it to be breathtakingly beautiful and spent at least an hour here marvelling at the splendour of the frescoes. This little gem of a church is in our opinion worth a visit and compares favourably with the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua. This was the highlight of our visit to Milan and is not too far from DaVinci's Last Supper.

Reviewed September 30, 2012

It was not as overcrowded as other tourists attractions in Milan. Great atmosphere in this little church.

“What a find”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

The outside gives one no idea of the superb interior. Free, with friendly guides, and not too many people. You can see it all in about half an hour.

“For fans of churches only”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

If you love churches, history and wonderful painted frescos, then you'll love this church. The claim to fame of this church is the large number of frescos. If you're not too bothered about churches, then you'll be in and out in a few minutes. The choice is yours!
