If you passed by this church, looked at its unimpressive exterior, and passed it by, it would be one of the greatest regrets of your trip. The walls inside have some of the city's most incredible murals and frescoes, painted in the 16th century. Some of them were painted by Bernardino Luini, who studied under Da Vinci himself. Much of the art pays tribute to Ippolita Sforza, lady of a powerful family, famous for her many letters and poems. The other highlights here are the 16th century organ by Gian Giacomo Antegnati, and the serene convent hall. The church was built on the site of some ancient Roman structure.

Very nice place. I can recomand it.
A hidden Treasure of Milan a must see. In AJ upmarket shopping street and near to Santa Maria delle Grazie ( last supper By Leonardo Da Vinci ) and Sant Ambrogio. Great paintings
One of my favorite places to take people when they visit Milan. There are paintings from floor to ceiling. Most tell various stories from the Bible. Make sure to enter the back part of the church using the small door on the left.
From the outside this church looks hardly worth a second glance but inside it is a wonder of colourful paintings that are worth stopping to see. All the walls are covered in frescoes. I was particularly taken with the one telling the story of Noah's Ark.
Very recommended visit. It is an unusual church, decorated with frescoes all along the walls. The entrance is free.
