This church stands in a lovely square and looks a lot more modern than most churches in Milan. Inside it is very pretty without being spectacular like many others but has a lovely alter, four beautiful alcoves full of paintings and sculptures,.

There are so many, many amazing churches to see in Milan (and all over Italy) that you can almost get overwhelmed. Yet this is yet another of the breath taking free churches almost better than any art gallery. A must see for sure.

Piazza San Fedele is just a few steps from the Scala and the Vittorio Emanuele gallery. Bordered by the historic and prestigious Palazzo Marino in Mannerist style and by other ancient palaces, the square is dominated by the church of the same name with only...More

During our search for La Scala, we wondered into Chiesa di San Fedele. The space is wonderfully quiet and solemn. The unobtrusive exterior does not do justice to the exquisite beauty inside. It is churches like these that serve to remind us that these are...More

Brilliant baroque Jesuit church built in 1569, with Pellegrino Tibaldi as architect. Tibaldi studied under Michelangelo who was busy at that time with the Sistine Chapel. In many aspects San Fedele (Saint Fidelis) is similar to the Gesu in Rome. The outside is a simple...More

The Jesuit church was built in the 16th century, mostly by architect Pellegrino Tibaldi. It is a modest and harmonious building designed in typical Catholic Counter-Reformation style. Simple and elegant building located at the nice and equally elegant square.

Chiesa di San Fedele is one of the smaller churches, and compared to the Duomo it would be just a little chapel! Nevertheless it's a lovely building, both outside as well as in the interior, and it's worth having a look in if you are...More

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon
of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds
to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria
Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
