Tidy church tucked away in the busiest part of Milan. Really nice decor but not somewhere you'd typically spend a lot of time.

I just loved this small church. I am always amazed at the specific beauty each church has. I looked at outside and almost walked by. The alter has a 3-D effect which is quite interesting. Each side chapel is also lovely

It's not the most impressive church in Milan, but because it's central you might just go past it. I advice to take a look at it on your way !

Not too far from the Cathedral, this much smaller church has a very interesting interior, with a false perspective that's worth checking out. Free to visit.

This small-ish church is sort of hiding in plain sight - just a few minutes from the Duomo and on one of the busiest shopping street of Milan it would be very easy to miss and to ignore. The interior is quite stunning - the...More

Go! You will not be disappointed! It’s a peaceful, reflective experience that will take jus 30 minutes of your time. Wonderful to have seen this preserved building and art. Also, there are other masterpieces that have been well preserved, too!
