We nearly missed this beautiful place. Very unassuming from the outside but so lovely inside. No entrance fee so we chose to make a donation. The music playing in the background added to the wonderful feeling while taking in these beautiful frescoes. Perhaps not as...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square

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.
