Other than La Ultima Cena (which you need to pay for and book a lot in advance), this was my favourite thing in Milan. The artwork of the frescoes was unbelievable. I spent almost 2 hours just staring up at the ceilings, and deciphering the stories behind paintings. As a non-Christian person, I was able to recognise more than half of the stories from the Bible just through the wonderfully executed artwork.
The one thing I really loved about this church were the depictions of God in two of the ceiling sections. It is extremely rare (I have found) to see God represented in places of worship, and it was very interesting for me. I was also fascinated at the tiny sections in the wall through which the nuns were required to observe the ceremonies occurring in the public side of the church.
Considering it is free to enter, I left a donation in the box that I felt I would have been happy paying just to enter.
If you have only 1 day in Milan, this needs to be on your list!
