“A hidden gem - beautiful frescoes.”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

This church was included as part of a walking tour I had booked in order to see Da Vinci's The Last Supper. Don't forget to go 'behind the alter' as this is where the best frescoes are.

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

If you are going to Milan do NOT miss this little wonder. The floor to ceiling frescoes depicting Noah's Ark, Christ's crucifixtion and the last supper are a wonder.

“WOW!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

It doesn't look much from the outside and it doesn't feature highly in some of the guide books, but this place is spectacular on the inside. The painting style might not be to everyone's taste (if you like things to be totally literal, for example), but this is number 1 for a reason. It's also free to enter and on the day we visited, we made a donation and got a bookmark in return!

There was a man to greet us and give us a bit of information when we visited and he was very enthusiastic and informative. It doesn't take long to go round this place if you only have a few minutes to visit you should still go! Well worth it!

“How is this number one?”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

Amazing paintings? If done by a 12 year old maybe.

It is a travesty this place is number one of the Cathedral of Milan!

As for the Noah's Ark painting... it has unicorn's on it. When was the last time you saw a unicorn?

“Small place but amazing paintings”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Small church that is not attracting from outside but amazing paintings inside, currently being renovated. Originally cut in two parts, one accessible for the public, other for nuns, never saw that before.
