Nicknamed “Milan’s Sistine Chapel”, this church has a completely different presentation, using mainly wall and ceiling paintings instead of statues. It’s not quite the Sistine, but you’ll recognize the vague comparison

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.
