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.

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 plain exterior facade conceals an amazing jewel. The history is fascinating - a church and a convent - and every wall is covered in beautiful frescoes. Do not miss this highlight of Milan.

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.
