  • A beautiful church, outside the city centre but easily accessible: in front of the hospital and close to the motorway exit. It was the Church where the wedding was celebrated Visconti-Sforza. There is a piece of plaster that is not painted, and frescoes!

  • The "Sistina" lever is always visible, but you are unable to make the most of your visit. Low light, no accessibility to the presbytery, the choir stalls, at chapels over the gates, the cloister, reserved for seclusion, very limited visitor desires.

  • For me it is always the most beautiful town church (duomo) and the fact that it is in the suburbs, so not easy to reach, adds to visit a different flavor: there you enter by accident because you pass by. This church is seek and who's coming up here is because he wants to see it (and maybe you will be informed before visit). However it is practically in front of the major hospital in the city. The present church you goes up to 1460 although was completed in 1535, but previously there was another church with much more ancient origins. Rich in frescoes of relief of various fields of Boccacino, of cats. Probably the most important historical event that has seen protagonist was the marriage of Bianca Maria Visconti and Francesco Sforza in 1441. Since 2007 is cloistered monastery (unfortunately) of Dominican nuns. Their goodness give us twice a year to visit the cloister, refectory and the wooden choir. It happens the first of May and the third Sunday of September. The visit is accompanied by guides explaining passionately what you have before, among other things for free (donation). If you switch from Cremona you can't stop here.
