This church was unknown to us until our guide took us there. What a gem! Great art and a wonderful insight into convent life. We were almost mesmerised but the reclusive, contemplative life is not for us.

We actually passed by this church, without stopping in, on our way to Santa Maria Del Grazie to see “The Last Supper”( or at least had planned to until we arrived at the ticket office and learned there were “no more tickets available until September!!!”!!!)...More
