If you are into frescoes, this is a crown jewel. I visited here as part of a short guided tour in Milan. The frescoes are wonderful.

This little church crowned my stay in Milan. With a very unassuming façade, it can easily be overlooked. But that would be a shame. On the inside, almost every inch of it is covered with paintings. Its modest size and vivid colours help create an...More

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.
