    The façade of the Church is very simple and lame, but the Interior is very rich and redundant. Discovery thanks to a choral concert, very pleasant indeed.

    The set was created between the 13th and 14th centuries on the ruins of a pre-existing hospital, where the Anthony dedicated themselves to care for the sick of the "sacred fire" (herpes zoster). The entrance is free and highlights the dome with the history of the Holy Cross, work of Giovanni and Giovan Battista Carloni (1631-32).

    The complex (whose early work dates back to 1272) was built by the monks who were dedicated to Abdullah of Vienne, ministering to the sick of the sacred fire. With the construction of the CA ' Granda is the monastery lost its function and was given as commendation to the powerful family of Trivulzio, who retained from 1452 until the second half of the 16th century. In this period, probably 15th century bell tower and the first cloister.

  • Exquisite fresco cycle in the vaults of the central nave.
  • Good
  • A church really silent, positioned in a rare and beautiful place. The frescoes are stunning and the courtyard alongside is magical.
