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.

  • Stunningly beautiful inside. There wasn't much in the guide book and really we came upon this by accident. The art work is gorgeous. Entry is free. Highly recommended.

  • Just beautiful. Frescos cover all walls. Look at the barrel vaulted ceiling.

  • Excellent Monastery full of Luini`s frescoes painted in beginning of XVI century. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.

  • What a gem of a place! Free entrance (as it should be for churches) and not crowded at all. The whole church is a piece of art inside. Stroll around and enjoy it all at your own pace.

  • Stunning convent church frescoed on every surface. Must see.
