The Church of San Maurizio awaits with its collection of 16th-century Renaissance frescoes. Bernardino Luini, who painted most of the church, was a Lombard artist who worked with Leonardo da Vinci. Saint Ambrose is not only Milan's patron saint, but also was a charismatic personality. Archbishop Ambrose lies in the crypt of the basilica founded by him in the 4th century, which is considered by locals to be the true church.
