  • Experience is very important to participate in the singing of Vespers with the nuns in the evenings immersed in the richness of paintings from the ancient Church.

  • It was designed at the behest of Bianca Maria Visconti in memory of her marriage to Francesco Sforza. The Church is unusual as it has a single nave, the decoration of the nave was begun by Camillo Boccaccino the apse with Christ in glory and the same author also released the entire decoration of the sanctuary with frescoes of Christ and the adulteress and the raising of Lazarus. He influenced the fresco on the left wall, dated 1577, representing the dinner at Simon's House. By Antonio Campi is the altarpiece depicting the beheading of Saint John the Baptist. A very impressive in his eloquent Church frescoes.

  • The monastery is located far from the old town. After the hospital, following directions, turn right and walk along a path that leads to Piazza Bianca Maria Visconti. The Church has a single nave built in the Renaissance style of the second half of the 15th century. Arose at the behest of Bianca Maria Visconti, replacing a chapel dedicated to the Saint, in memory of the place where, on 25 October 1441, were celebrated the marriage of the Duchess and Francesco Sforza (the first stone is still visible in the first chapel on the right). Unlike the outside (very simple), the interior features, as well as fine stucco, also of precious frescoes from the XVI century by different artists, among them Camillo Snipe, Julius and Bernardino Campi, etc. .. Wrought iron fence pickets are also interesting. Unfortunately the cloister and monastic choir we couldn't visit, because they are only open on 1 St may (feast of San Sigismondo) and 3° Sunday of September (the anniversary of the dedication of the Church).
