  • I returned many times to visit this beautiful church located in the heart of Milan, right inside the vast area that was the Roman Forum of Mediolanum, for 120 years, capital of the Western Roman Empire. For a description of the Church refer to the previous review. Now, since last year, was reopened to visitors the underground crypt, the upper Church can be visited more often than a few years ago. According to the great Leonardo da Vinci the geometric center of Milan consists of this church. It should be noted that the Church floor is slightly uphill towards the altar; This is meant to represent the ascent to Calvary Jesus before the crucifixion. On either side of the altar are exposed two colored earthenware and representations in almost natural grandeur. One represents the last supper and the other on the trial of Jesus. To see!

  • I came back to this church several times, most recently to admire some paintings, in particular two beautiful paintings: "Saint George and the Dragon", painted by Camillo Procaccini in the last years of the 16th century, and "the mother of God worshipped by Saint Philip Neri", opera seventeenth-century by Carlo Francesco Nuvolone. Worthy of note are the other paintings and frescoes, and the precious polychrome terracotta figures.

  • The price of 10 euros does not justify the entrance to the crypt. Certainly one thing remains to be seen but at a significantly lower price. There are people who explain, there's nothing, only visual exhibitions that look like there getting nowhere with the place.

  • Although church existed already in XI century, nothing original left inside. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Under the church is the crypt where you are going to find the copy of Jesus Sepulcher as it was imagined by Milanese masters of XIV century. To visit the crypt you have to buy a ticket.
  • Chiesa di San Sepolcro is located in the piazza with the same name and what I found interesting was that there was quite some movement in front of it, as opposed to other churches in Cagliari that seemed to be so quiet. Groups of youngsters or older people seemed to pop in and out of the church as if it was the centre of some activities. Inside, the church had three 'plans' of interest and 3 altars, so it was easy to relax for 10 minutes and pray that no one is going to disturb me. No fee being charged at the entrance, but again with the exception of the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, no one else charges anything in Cagliari. Visit away!
  • There is a discrepancy in the working time on the website, and the one at the front door. So we wasted our time taking a detour to visit the crypt at 5:30pm on the first evening. The following day (monday), as we arrived at 7pm, we were told that the crypt is closed for the day, and that we should instead come the next day. That's the day of the departure, so we won't be visiting the place. And to think MilanoCard was "kind" enough to give us a "special" free visit to an unavailable museum.
  • Strongly suggested if you are interested in the history and archeology
  • Worth a look inside
