  • To access the ancient Sanctuary, take a ladder on the right side of the Church. It consists of two square cloisters including the Chapel, also in a square layout, while a Colonnade runs along the entire façade. The shrine offers once completely frescoed with depictions of the Apostles. It is said that wanted the construction of the shrine was the Governor of Milan Carlo d'amboise after he was healed by the water of a miraculous fountain that existed at that place, so the sanctuary became a shelter for the sick among the most important in the city. The water coming out of the taps now though, unfortunately, is only tap water.

  • Is of the period fourteenth-seventeenth century. Develops a square from a shrine, with two cloisters squares on which rests the upper Church, surrounded by a portico on four sides. At the beginning of the twentieth century has undergone a massive transformation, especially on the façade.

  • Seems o be interesting
  • No indicators for the fountains, i could not find them
  • Church and the sanctuary of Santa Maria alla Fontana, with beautiful porticoed courtyards, centered on the slurry pits and decorated with 17th century frescoes. In the room of the miraculous fountain, water jets gushing reequipped with unique frescoes are attributed to the workshop of Bernardino Luini.

  • Pity that deviated spring holy water would otherwise 5 * and aqueduct to preferring praise. The Sanctuary's 11 fountain nozzles glue the lower church at the following hours: Monday-Saturday from 9.30 -12 and 14.30 -17.30; Sunday, equal except that afternoon an hour later axis i.e. At7 .30. * In line with serious structural failure Roman Catholic Church worldly materialism: could be compromised by spending in chemical analysis or affix warning that drinking water is not guaranteed, or yielding more crudely but more decently declaring not drinking holy water. Moreover the host with traces of gluten nor transubstantiates nor becomes even in gluten. Though vaccinations are healthy or not deserve State intervention in business unlike abortions and IUS SOLI.

  • Friday afternoon, taking advantage of the lunch break, I went to visit this church monument in a very secluded area of the city of Milan, Isola neighbourhood. Unfortunately, I could not sweep the cloister frescoed, because closed to the public on the occasion of a marriage, it would be celebrated the next day. Interior very cozy and intimate.
