Church of Ste Marie des Anges

Recommended
This convent church was begun in 1499 and has three of the finest frescoes by Bernardo Luini (c. 1480-1532). The most impressive adorns the partition separating the chancel from the nave and depicts the Passion. In the 1st chapel on the right, a fresco of the Virgin and Child and St John is said to "be worthy of a Leonardo". In the nave, there is a Last Supper.
