Peaceful and very nice church for relaxing and take a breath between running out for shopping. Nice paintings and everything needed for visiting. Special background why this building is there.

Relatively unadorned, but authentic church. The place is quiet, genuine - no gift shop, no ticket to get in, no armed guards, just a lovely old church. Lovely frescoes, but restrained stained glass windows. Nice, certainly, but no wow factor.

The facade of the church is mostly made of brick. Above the entrance there is a figure of Christ. The main chapel is quite simple and does not call attention.

Discrete, small but well placed... this church will attract your attention! Don't know how old it is, but seems well managed & maintained proper & in good shape.

This church is totally underwhelming inside, but its red brick exteriors make it somehow more interesting. If you're in the area, a 1-2 minute visit is all you need.

This church makes a nice change from the many extravagant basilicas and cathedrals you see in Italy. Go in if you pass by, but don't walk miles for it.

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
