A must visit ! Stunning frescoes in front and rear of church. Be warned, there is a long mass on Sunday mornings. Best to visit after 1pm on Sundays!

It is prominently located along the Corso Magenta 15 and located right next to the Museo Archeologico. It is worth a visit because of its beautifully frescoed interior.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon

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.
