Santa Maria del Carmine, Milan

(4.3/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
Chiesa di Santa Maria del Carmine is a church in Milan, Italy. It was built in 1446.HistoryIn 1268, the carmelites obtained a seta near the Castello Sforzesco: here, starting from the 14th century, they built a convent with an annexed church. The latter was however destroyed in a fire in 1330. The rebuilt church fell also in abandon before the end of the century, after the friars moved to another convent.The new church was built from 1400, under the design of friar Bernardo da Venezia. Works were completed in 1446. The vault crumbled down three years after the completion, and a restoration was necessary. In the mid-15th century, the church became a favourite destination for aristocratic burials, as testified by the numerous noble tombs in the chapels and niches. In the 17th century, the presbytery was remade in Baroque style. The current façade was designed by Carlo Maciachini and completed in 1880.DescriptionThe interior has a nave and two aisles. They are covered by crossed vault ceilings and separated by large circular pillars in cotto or simple stone. In the naves and transepts are several artworks, including works by Camillo Procaccini depicting St Charles Borromeo Praying (1585) and other works by the painter in the Chapel of Madonna del Carmine, as well as a Madonna statue at the altar.The high altar features a small temple inspired to that in the Milan Cathedral.

  • I have read the life of Saint Expeditus martyr and I was curious-is in the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine and I went to visit it-very nice Church and holding well with paintings by Procaccini which are beautiful-I found an elderly Priest with whom I had a long and enjoyable conversation-well worth a visit |

  • On a small Piazza del Carmine in the Brera quarter, your eyes suddenly appears St Mary's Church, in Gothic style, an unexpected among the surrounding buildings a reddish tint, with a delicate lace round stained-glass window on the Center, and when you go, right in the corner you awaits a real treasure and a feast of spirit-incredible font in the Baroque style, the jewel of this church. Be sure to check back if there is a possibility.

  • The small baroque chapel is one of the nicest I've ever seen, really interesting and various small chapels along the nave are interesting to understand the content with which it developed religion in Milan.

  • Worth a visit. There's a large amount of religious art.
  • Beautiful.
  • Church of Catholic worship, near Brera district. Neo-Gothic façade and Latin cross Interior. In the beautiful square, you can appreciate a sculpture, representing the torso of a young man, who may seem, a representation of models of ancient Greek youths. The sculpture is by Igor Mitoraj, under the title of "Great Toscano" has been present since 1986 and is also known as "Chest in half" the artist likes to make men's classic traditional style busts. La piazzetta is quite charming, and is visited by many tourists. Before there is a Food where you can have lunch, a drink and dine.
