  • I came back at the end of February to revisit this pretty little Baroque church alongside the Rinascente. The Church is known, besides the fact of being the perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, for the fact of hosting in rotations works by contemporary artists which are well integrated with classical operas that the Church contains. From mid-February until the end of March has an artwork of William Congdon entitled ' the temptation of Christ. " Deserves to go there!

  • The origins of this church date back to the year 918, appearing in a document that specifies that it was annexed to the monastery of St. Radegund. In 1119 was consecrated, passing through various phases until its demolition, starting in 1572 the construction of a new building, elevated to parish San Carlos Borromeo, by applying the artistic principles of the Counter-Reformation. Without a doubt, what most draws the attention of this church is its façade, which was not completed until 1892, composed of two superimposed orders: the lower is divided by hermas of stone of Angera topped by gigantic heads of men bearded, similar to the found in the presbytery of the Cathedral; the only higher-order corresponds to the nave and was decorated with items donated by the factory of the Cathedral. In its interior there highlight a collection of paintings by various authors from the beginning of the 17TH century.

  • In addition to valuable paintings with which artists of the level of Cerano, Morazzone, Caravaggino, Ambrogio Figino and Camillo Procaccini have decorated the Interior, over the Christmas period and until next January 13 in the right nave of this 16th century Church is can admire "The Shepherd's dream", a magnificent bronze relief where the sculptor veneto Héctor Cabrera (1912-97) expressing the message of peace and hope brought in a dream to man from the Nativity, that the artist has chosen to place upon the hearts of the PAL. Worth a detour from classical route along the Duomo-Corso Vittorio Emanuele – Piazza San Babila.

  • San Babila is a Roman Catholic church in Milan, northern Italy. It was once considered the third most important in the city after the Duomo and the Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio. It is dedicated to saint Babylas of Antioch. At the beginning of the 5th century, Marolus, the bishop of Milan, brought from Antioch to Milan relics of saints Babylas of Antioch and Romanus of Caesarea. Marolus founded the Basilica Concilia Sanctorum or church of San Romano, which stood until the 19th century, a few meters south of the church of San Babila, on the site of a Roman temple dedicated to the Sun. The church of San Babila was built on the same site in about 1095.In the 16th century, the church was extended with an additional construction at the front and a new baroque façade. The church still retains its original medieval fabric, although much was lost due to baroque and modern renovations. The whole complex was renovated in the 19th century with the intent of restoring the appearance of the medieval basilica, and in the early 20th century the Neo-Romanesque façade by Paolo Cesa-Bianchi was built. The bell tower is from 1920, and replaced the original tower which fell down in the 16th century. The interior has a nave and two aisles. There are two side chapels that date from the late Renaissance. The right aisle has an image of the Madonna which is highly venerated by the Milanese population.
