While in Milan we didn’t get to any museums but we did find a really charming church called San Maurizio. It’s a small church and what makes it special are the frescos by Luini, a follower of Leonardo and a contemporary of Michaelangelo. The paintings are wonderful. The church is divided in two with one part being the church and one part a ninth century convent. The nuns used to look through a metal grate into the church during mass.

The church section. Look at all of those paintings!

On the nun’s side.

Noah’s arc with the animals two by two. Isn’t it sweet?

And look! Unicorns! What ever happened to them?

Adam and Eve and that old snake,Satan.

Isn’t she lovely?
