This was a pleasant surprise. The ceilings and walls were beautifully decorated and had a charming fresco of Noah's Ark. One of the highlights of our visit to Milan.

Everyone is right - the inside of this church is truly stunning. I particularly loved the Noah’s ark fresco. The frescos are in very good condition too. Quite lovely.
