    But worthy of visit. Began in late 15th century and completed during the 16th century I believe, preceded by a large portico which isolates the busy Corso Italy. Inside a baptism of Christ by Gaudenzio Ferrari and others. To visit the same day the nearby Sant'Eufemia and San Alessandro nearby Missori.

    As clearly explained in my previous reviews this beautiful church-or more precisely, Sanctuary of Santa Maria dei Miracoli-has the feature, as can be seen by the designation, to be built next to the far more ancient of San Celso, from which separate it about eleven hundred years. The Church of San Celso-little known and not always open – it really is for history and artistic relevance a valuable destination that I highly recommend visiting. Indeed, despite last centuries speak of ancient times with many original testimonials still present on site: sculptures, frescos, bas-reliefs, arches, columns and capitals, all valuable works performed with the finest in art. Built in the 15th century. IV and rebuilt in the Church of San Celso 996 is undoubtedly one of the oldest in Milan, as well as the massive Bell Tower dating back to centuries. XI, when the Church was rebuilt in Romanesque-Lombard. Somewhat hidden behind the most famous shrine and adjacent and the Church overlooks Corso Italy from the bottom of a closed garden, surrounded by the remains of the original building, neo-Romanesque façade rebuilt by Luigi Canonica in years 1851-54 but stands the magnificent portal of sec. XII, with a beautiful relief in the architrave (stories from the life of santi Nazaro e Celso), the bezel frescoed late XVI century by Giovan Battista Crespi (il Cerano) (Virgin between the two Saints) and the beautiful carved wooden door of 1434 (Madonna between SS. Nazaro e Celso, Sant'Ambrogio between Saints Gervaso and Protaso): a set of harmonious beauty alone is worth the visit. Inside, collected and impressive, between pillars and vaults, are worth noting the Romanesque baptismal font at the entrance, the altar is a simple early Christian sarcophagus, two frescos of Madonnas with child, one of late 15th century (the one on the left), the other to late 18th cent. XI of Byzantine clear imprint. In short a meta really top notch and worthy of attention, which you can't miss with the famous shrine standing next.

    Already entering the sober portico that precedes the Church, the work of beginning five hundred of Cesariano, and faced the sumptuous 16th-century façade of Galeazzo Alessi and Martino Bassi remains impressed by so much beauty, so different in shapes and materials used. Renaissance aisles inside the Church reserves even higher emotions enveloping the visitor with its countless works of art, the rich decorations and the perfect architectural harmony of the whole. Yet, incredibly, every time I come here-as this morning-I find very few people and even fewer tourists. And it is increasingly rare to see any bride wear her bouquet to the Madonna, according to an ancient and nice tradition that even my mother respected in that distant 5 November 1937 just married into that one beautiful church which is Sant'Alessandro in Zebedia (see review). Church rich in history, atmosphere and great works of art: a must see along with the adjacent of St. Celso. For more details refer to my previous review.
