  • The Church was begun in 1558 by the clerics regular of St. Paul. Two orders façade with a single portal, marked by a serliana. Single nave covered with a barrel vault, several restoration works by Galeazzo Alessi, thermal Windows for lighting of the side chapels, always by the same Alessi. The crypt of 1891 to designs by Carlo Maciachini, houses the body of Antonio Maria Zaccaria.

  • This pretty little Church dedicated to Saints Paul and Barnabas was commissioned by the founder of the clerics regular of Saint Paul also called Barnabites, whose founder (St. Anthony m. Zaccaria) is buried under the altar. The façade is caused by Alessi and between portals, columns, pilasters and a large picture window a serliana, there are the statues of the Apostles Peter and Paul and of St. Ambrose and St. Barnabas, the Saints closest to the order of the barnabite. The Interior is decorated with rich and important frescos by Procaccini, and from paintings of Peterzano (stories of Paul and Barnabas) while on altars canvases of Lomazzo (Saint Francis of Assisi) and Luini (piety).

  • Built in the middle of the 16th century the Church was modified in 1561 by Galeazzo Alessi in the style of the Counter Reformation, of which it represents the first example in Milan. Observing the façade ruffle decorative eye a strong imbalance between the two orders: extremely rich and elaborated the top edge, sober and almost bare one below, you have lost the original ornamental plasterwork. The Interior has a nave with side chapels, it is noted for the vaults and apse with beautiful decorations in fresco, in part by Camillo Procaccini, and some fine paintings of famous painters of the sixteenth century such as Simone Peterzano (the two large paintings on the sides of the presbytery), Aurelio Luini, Ambrose Figino, Carlo Urbino and Bernardino Campi. Unfortunately the works are not shown, nor there are explanatory signs whatsoever. Should therefore read up before any visit, that is better matched to that to Guastalla Gardens opposite and other destinations not far off, as the State University (ex Ospedale Maggiore "Ca ' Granda"), the basilica of San Nazaro in Brolo, the Church of Santo Stefano and s. Bernardino alle Ossa.

  • The Mannerist style church, built in 1545 almost opposite the Mangiagalli clinic, sober and rich in gilded stuccoes. On the sides of the altar there are two large canvases of 1600 of Peterzano. Frescos by Procaccini adorn the nave and choir. Other paintings in the chapels of Lomazzo and Aurelio Luini. Under the altar, inside a glass urn, there are the mortal remains of Saint Anthony Mary Zaccaria died in 1539, founder of the Barnabites.
