  • 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.
