- Church San Maurizio Milan
The founding of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore Church (at the Great Monastery) in Corso Magenta as earlier nunnery and seat of the Benedictine Order of Milan dates back to the Longobard time. Some of the stones that were used originate from Roman buildings.
The main attraction of the monastery are frescoes, including a beautiful cycle of the 15th Century as well as wall paintings by Bernardino Luini.
The rooms of the monastery are used as an archaeological museum.
