  • We crossed as we were heading up to the Castle; pretty sketchy, with a short entrance staircase and a small Colonnade, this church is confused in monochrome. Still, as legend has it, is a place that deserves far more attention. The neo-classical style is evident, with columns and pediment almost like a Greek or Roman temple; but this church is witness to several centuries. Surely it is here from the year 1000 presented with full name of s. Tomaso in Terra Mala, or s. Tomaso in Cruce Sigerii, probably because it started as the family's private chapel Sigerio. Terra mala was the name by which it was known this area of Porta Comasina, but it is not yet known with certainty from where arrivals this bad rap. This curious name may refer to two different sources. The first, historical forms, as this was the area in which, during the Roman period of persecution, Christians were tortured and killed. A second version, certainly more impressive, he would narrate the story of a vicar buried him alive. Legend has it that the priest has refused to bury a man in graveyards because the widow had no pay function. Giovanni Visconti, informed, rushes to the binnacle and buries the priest into the pit prepared for the other deceased. Architecturally, the Interior has a single nave, as controriformistiche and churches by works that tell the two different phases of the church building and the neoclassical age. Don't miss the assumption into heaven of San Carlo Borromeo di Giulio Cesare Procaccini.

  • Chiesa di San Tomaso-very quiet and seemingly modest neprimečatel′naâ Church. The first mention of it date back to the 11st century. The main distinctive feature of the Church is a beautiful mosaic floor, so go inside a must.

  • One of the oldest churches of Milan. Outwardly neprimečatel′naâ, inside she hides little miracle-mosaic floor.
