Free admission to a beautiful church. Don’t let the outside appearance scare you away. Floor-to-ceiling frescos with no waiting in line. A hidden gem in Milan!

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.

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.
