This church used to be once the third most important church in Milan, now largely modified in the 19th and 20th century in a Neo Romanesque style which unfortunately does not gives its history justice.

It is restfully place, ideally for persons who want to have silence in a big and crowdy city. It is looking very nice from outside. In interior you can find many capellas, specific arches and only few paintings on the walls.

One of the oldest churches in the city. It was built in the 11th century. You must be lucky to get in, three times we were there was closed. It is in the very busy part of Milan.

Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
