  • Interesting Church located near the Duomo and perhaps unknown to most people, attracted me particularly the Bell Tower, the Gothic style still made out of marble and terracotta, equipped with the first public clock in Milan and perhaps Italy. The Church as the origin dates back to the 14th century If this review did you like, you can read my other for Milan (and others) and I'm glad a click on: is it useful? Thanks:)

  • Very nice, especially after the renovation and the ticket of the dome let you watch a beautiful mystery of Milan, unknown to many.

  • A church commissioned by Duke Galeazzo Visconti, the architect Francesco Pecorari, built between 1330 and 1336. Beautiful octagonal tower, quarry stone quadrangular basis.
