Chiesa di Santa Maria al Paradiso is a church in Milan, Italy. It was begun in 1590 for the Third Order of Saint Francis, after designs by Martino Bassi. The facade, however, was only added in 1897 in a Neo-Baroque style by the architect Ernesto Pirovano (1866-1934).The interior of the church maintains some of its original decoration, including medallions and stucco depicting scenes from the life of Mary, including The Assumption in the central nave by Ferdinando Porta which obscured the original decoration by Andrea Pellegrini. In the first chapel on the right, there is a Miracle of Angels with St. Isidore and Bonaventure. In the fourth chapel, the St. Anne is attributed to Francesco Fabbrica. On the left side, a chapel is a painting of San Carlo Borromeo meeting with those sick with the Plague by Andrea Porta. The functioning organ was constructed in 1827 by Antonio Brunelli.

  • Recommend to visit this church together with legends and traditions already described finally offers to view all frescoes and paintings housed in and diligently reported at each Chapel. Always interesting the wooden choir of the late sixteenth century. Worth then a visit, perhaps along with other nearby destinations: the Basilica of San Nazaro in Brolo, former Ca ' Granda today University, St Stephen's Basilica and the Church of San Bernardino alle Ossa. Over all the Church "to heaven" is very easy to reach, because there they stop tram 24 and the M3 at Crocetta, in addition to various other lines.

  • Nave with several lateral chapels. In the floor in the Middle aisle is placed a round stone with holes. Traditionally it is served, to stand for the cross of St. Barnabas, at the time of Christian preaching in Milan. The foundation stone, laid in 1590, in the sacristy, are preserved paintings of the seventeenth century and vestments.

In 1897, while the façade is made in 1962, the Church was elevated to a parish. The Interior of the Church has a single nave covered by a barrel vault with four chapels on either side. It is currently undergoing a major restoration on all the frescoes of the Chapel, but okay.

  • Small church of ' 500 kept very well. In partial restoration frescoes and stuccoes. Significant historical stone embedded in the center of the floor of the Church. Interesting history of this rock with metal grinding wheel of the year 51 when St. Barnabas was in Milan. From there comes the feast called "tredesin de marz".

  • Baroque church of 1590 sober not large but interesting, with large paintings of merit unfortunately overshadowed by low light. In the middle of the churchyard is a round stone where the Barnaba March 13 of 51 s. d.c. put the cross in announcing the beginning of Christianity. Are in restructuring the first chapels to the left and right.
