This church has some very unusual aspects. There is a partial wall behind the altar which allows sound from the Mass to be heard up and over it to the chapel on the other side of the wall. Thete used to be cloistered Benidictine nuns...More
our tour guide said that behind the plain exterior buildings of Milan there are beautiful gems, and The Church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore was the perfect example. It was incredibly beautiful. Well worth the visit and close to the Duomo
I just stumbled upon this after visiting the Archeological Museum next door--wow-- the frescos are fantastic. Be sure to go to the back convent area.
In all my trips to Italy, this is one of the most memorable churches I've ever seen.
This is an amazing place. The walls and ceiling are covered with fantastic paintings and walk through the doorway to the side of the altar and you are in the convent. It is immediately adjacent to the archaeological museum.
There are paintings absolutely everywhere in this church. Quite amazing. The space inside is divided by a wall, as the inner part was part of a convent and the nuns needed to be separated from the rest of the congregation. They could listening to the...More

Short walk from Castello Sforza, this small place is beautiful. Covered from floor to ceiling with frescoes. The entry is free and there were no crowds, even though I visited in the middle of the day. Well worth a visit.
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the
view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
