Chiesa di Sant'Angelo, Milan
(4.3/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
Sant'Angelo is a church in Milan, Lombardy, northern Italy, belonging to the Franciscan Order.HistoryThe church was constructed in the mid-16th century by the Spanish general and Governor Milan Ferrante Gonzaga, over an edifice already existing in 1418, in replacement of the eponymous one, which had been destroyed to build the new walls. The design was by Domenico Giunti. The small bell tower was added in 1607, while the façade was finished only in 1630, in late-Mannerist or early-Baroque style. The church is one of the few in the city which was not restored in "neo-medieval" style during the 19th century.It has a single nave with side chapels and barrel vault, a transept and a deep presbytery. Artworks include works by Gaudenzio Ferrari (chapel of St. Catherine, now replaced by a copy; the original is in the Pinacoteca di Brera), Antonio Campi (same chapel), Morazzone (a St. Charles Borromeo in Glory), Simone Peterzano (frescoes in the St. Anthony Chapel), Ottavio Semino (Brasca Chapel in the transept), Camillo Procaccini (frescoes in the transept and in several chapels) and Giulio Cesare Procaccini (a Nativity, in the Rococo-style sacristy).

  • Exactly right was defined in 1420 this beautiful gem of the rich city of Milan, built on an old and small church dedicated to Saint Angelo, I find under the impulse of San Bernardino a dazzling splendor. Destroyed burned bombed was always rebuilt, as a symbol of the city and of devotion to the Franciscans, this church today houses masterpieces works by Luini, Procaccini, Gnocchi, Piazza, Semino, with architectural works of joints. So if you come to Milan enjoy the magic of this beautiful place of worship.

  • Enriched with valuable works of Luini and Procaccini, the Church of Sant'Angelo is situated in the crossroads between corso di Porta Nuova, via della Moscova and Sant'Angelo square, where stands the fountain that the Milanese call it indifferently or water of San Francesco (Saint here speaks to birds of stone ... and also to those that rest on the fountain). The Church is wide, it is nice, can be visited and is quiet: five minutes in the Temple will return the tranquility that the crossing Porta Nuova-Moskva is a chimera ... A tip: every year, around mid-December, is held for a couple of weeks an exhibition of Russian icons. This is a review not to be missed: after all, the next December, there are many that just three months ...

  • This is truly an unknown Jewel. A jewel unknown, because it does not appear in tourist guides. Own of the Franciscan... simple by outside, with a wealth large by inside.
