Landmark Tourist Spot
Santa Maria Incoronata is a church in Milan, Italy. It was completed in 1460.Artworks in the interior include a painting by Bergognone, Christ under the Grill, the tomb of Giovanni Bossi, attributed to Bambaia, a Baroque fresco cycle of the Life of St. Nicholas of Tolentino by Ciro Ferrari, and the Biblioteca Umanistica ("Humanist Library", 15th century). The latter has three naves divided by granite columns, with frescoes of the Magisteri Sacrae Pagines commissioned by the Augustinians when they acquired the building. OF the original gardens and cloisters, only one of the latter has survived.HistoryThe church is formed by two paired buildings. The oldest one existed as early as the communal age and was dedicated to St. Maria di Gargnano. Starting from 1400, a new convent was built annexed to it for the Augustinians, who had the structure restored in late Gothic style. The new church was completed in the same age of the election of Francesco Sforza as duke of Milan 1451, and received the current name (meaning "St. Mary Crowned") in the occasion. In 1460 the duke's wife, Bianca Maria Visconti, commissione the construction of a new church next to the oldest one, identical and connected to it, in order to create a single, larger edifice.The church was modified in 1654 and 1827, but was restored to the medieval appearance in the early 19th century.

  • A beautiful 15th century church, located very close to the newest part of the city Porta Nuova...
  • Fantastic 15th century church.
  • A beautiful and charming place open to the public and sometimes used for exhibitions. The Church of Santa Maria Incoronata in the past was the fifteenth-century Library and probably to date and the only painted in Milan. On the first floor there is a large complex with a spacious dining room with colonnades of the fifteenth century and frescoes. Walking along corso Garibaldi to corso Como you can admire it on the right. I advise you to get in and see a piece of history.

  • Amazing double church with two altars, the left is the most ancient, rich in history and charm, just steps from the nightlife. Built in 1450 Lombard Gothic/simple but rich in works of painters by name, among them, in the first chapel on the left, a fresco by Bergognone: Christ under the press.

  • SANTA MARIA Dell'incoronata In one of the main streets of the "movida" Milanese is situated the unique 15th-century Church of Santa Maria dell'incoronata. Beautiful symmetrical façade consisting of two halves: basically are two Gothic churches in Lombardy. 
It is precisely for this feature which is also called the double church.
