  • 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.

  • Finally freed from almost all the scaffolding (only in two chapels on the right side) due to the excellent renovations the Interior is back shining with frescoes and decorations adorning the apse, ceiling, vaults and chapels. Improved lighting. As already written in the past the Church offers, in addition to the legendary stone of St Barnabas, a beautiful wooden choir dated 1590-1600 and some fine paintings of Five-six hundred of the Lombard school, including an adoration of the shepherds by Camillo Procaccini. If you are in the area of the Church is worth a detour for the visit.

  • In 2014 I reported this church for two reasons:-history: in the Middle, in the ornate marble floor, there is a round stone in which, according to legend, St. Barnabas would have planted the cross when he came to Milan to preach Christianity, March 13 of 51 a.d.; It is, therefore, a sign of the beginning of evangelization in Milan. And ... the "tredesìn de mars" is still celebrated in the area; -the valuable works contained therein (frescoes of the XVII century, paintings by various authors mainly 17th century including Camillo Procaccini, brother of the more famous Julius Caesar, sculptures in polychrome wood, altars and marble balustrades), despite substantial differences from the artistic point of view. Restoration completed in 2016 and not yet fully concluded made much more nice and bright this church: behind the altar are gilded stucco appearances, all the frescoes that already were visible in the apse and on the vault are lighter, side chapels frescoes have come to light that were previously hidden under the malta, a colorful frieze runs over the side chapels throughout the nave. Perhaps the quality of the works is not excellent, the decoration is still uneven, but the restoration has turned this church in a meta touristically interesting.

  • The stone on which St. Barnabas on March 13 of 51 a.d. planted the cross when he arrived in Milan announcing Christianity. The presence of this stone has given rise to the March 13 party tredesin de Mars, precisely such stone has 13 rays (photo).

  • 教堂里面很安静,这里参观是免费的,当你烦恼的时候可以来这里把心安静下来
  • Along porta Vigentina we find the Church of Santa Maria al Paradiso. Begun in 1590 by Gaspare Visconti, it was early in the Church of the friars of the third order regular of St. Francis. Two years later came the Served that led Saint Lucia, by Francesco factory and the stone on which St. Barnabas on March 13 of 51 a.d. planted the cross when he arrived in Milan announcing Christianity. The presence of this stone has given rise to the festa del tredesin de Mars, March 13 memo. The façade we can see today is: nineteenth-century neo-Baroque style is in two bipartite superimposed orders from a ledge. On the left side of the Church, next to the apse, there is the high brick Bell Tower with belfry and clock. Inside you can admire 17th century decorations: putti and swags and the joyful mysteries and other scenes from the life of Mary. On the vault of the nave, on the other hand, is depicted the assumption of Mary. In the niche on the right wall of the presbytery there is the pipe organ built in 1827.
