  • The Church of San Fedele, built by Charles Borromeo in person to welcome you to the Jesuit order. The decorative exuberance of the Interior is mostly from the 14th-century Church of Santa Maria della Scala, was destroyed to make way for, at the end of the eighteenth century, at La Scala. The works kept in the Church of San Fedele offer a nice overview of milanese art of the late sixteenth century with works by Giovanni Ambrogio Figino, Bernardino Campi, Carlo Urbino, Simone Peterzano, the master of Caravaggio, Cerano, right up to modern works by Lucio Fontana. Dear also to Manzoni, who is remembered with an inscription and that will die for a fall in the churchyard, the Church is now an outstanding example of 16th-century culture of Milan, strongly dependent on the adjustment to the wishes expressed by the Borromean dictates the Council of Trent.

  • Beautiful church
  • Imposing Jesuit church, designed by architect Pellegrino Tibaldi of San Carlos Borromeo, inside fine works, the area is pedestrianised.
