  • This beautiful church is located in corso di porta vigentina toward the Center. Dating from the 16th century on a project by Martino Bassi, has a single nave and 600 decorations can be seen. Eight side chapels filled with artworks, also in this church there is the famous "stone tredesin de mars", a gravestone.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Along porta Vigentina we find the Church of Santa Maria al Paradiso. Started to build in 1590 by Gaspare Visconti, it was early in the Church of the friars of the third order regular of St. Francis. Two centuries 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 March 13 party tredesin de Mars, in fact. The façade which today we can see is the nineteenth century: neo-Baroque is bipartite in two superimposed orders from a ledge. On the left side of the Church, near the apse, there is the high brick Bell Tower with clock & belfry. Inside you can admire 17th-century decorations: putti and swags and the joyful mysteries and other scenes from the life of Mary. On the ceiling 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.
