The design was by Francesco Pecorari from Cremona.The octagonal bell tower has the first example of public clock (before, sun-dials were used).The interior was restored in the Neoclassicist era by Giocondo Albertolli.

  • From the terraces of the Duomo is the best view, but also can be seen from the plaza, includes the joint entrance of the Museum, the Cathedral and the terraces, a pity that you could not climb. The architecture is spectacular

  • Are passed back from Gotthard pass coming out of the Royal Palace and I've kept from stopping to admire the bell tower that I always liked so much. I also noticed the presence of a modern sculpture that had been placed in the past on the terraces of the Duomo. Always a beautiful church.

  • He says it and rightly so, that has the most beautiful Bell Tower of Milan. Indeed it was the oldest clock in Milan. Both the Church and the tower are octagonal with the meaning that this had related to the resurrection of all, on the eighth day of the new creation. Of singular beauty, it is two minutes from the Duomo, so your visit is very easy.
