San Maurizio - A Renaissance masterpiece Nov 04, 2011
This is a beautiful Renaissance church, next to a monastery and situated along the Corso Magenta, the street that leads up to the Santa Maria delle Grazie (Last Supper).

The church is decorated with splendid 16th century frescoes, mainly by Luini, very recently restored (2010). Highly recommended.

Other highlights:

the Cappella Simonetta with the Deposizione di Cristo by Callisto Piazza

the Adorazione dei Magi by Antonio Campi

the 16th century organ in the Capella Simonetta

the Cappella Besozzi: fresco of the decapitation of Saint Catherine

the dividing wall, attributed to Luini

There is a virtual tour at the MilanArounder website (flash player required).

Part of the former monastery is now taken up by the Museo Archeologico.

Each year in spring a cycle of concerts is held in the church, the Musica e Poesia a San Maurizio.

Not accessible for the disabled (7 steps).
