We walked past this church after visiting the Duomo and Galleria Vittorio Emanuaele II. The square in front of it is small and quiet, with a small statue of Alessandro Manzoni. The church wasn't open for visitors, so unless you're already walking past this church then take a quick photo and move on, but I wouldn't go out of my... More

We stumbled upon this lovely church whilst walking around town. It seemed closed as there were only people sitting on the steps but no one going in or out. Walking in you are greeted with the sheer size, on par with many of the churches we saw in Rome. There are fantastic fescos and timberwork and it is the only... More

This is a very tranquil church, located in San Fedele square. The square itself is tucked away behind the Scala square, thus it enjoy a more quiet and serene atmosphere. There's a lovely statue of Alessandro Manzoni in the middle of the square.

Located in the tranquil San Fedele square, this is a decent little church. While architecturally speaking, the church is lovely, what makes it rather unique are the lovely paintings inside the church and the intricate wooden carvings. The acoustics of the church is absolutely perfect.

During my recent trip to Milano I had the pleasure of visiting the church of San Fedele. The square facing the church is simply beautiful and the perfect spot if you need to get away from the crowded 'Galleria.' The façade of the church made of Angera stone is astonishing. The rose varieties of the stone give the church a... More

We just entered a church that looked nice, I think churches should be open, and it was. Good. The interior: brilliant. Beautiful. Warm. You felt welcome. A very nice surprise, 300 meters from the (of course brilliant too) Duomo, a completely different but equally 5 star Chiesa.

After a morning tour, we had the rest of the afternoon on our own before the group headed back to the lakes region. We saw this church on the way back to the meeting place and stopped in. It's a beautiful church worthy of a visit.

You must make time to visit this church beside Piazza Della Scala and also near Duomo. It is a fine example of the architecture of Counter Reformation. You will be surprised to find a collection of both ancient and contemporary art. The fabulous wooden confessionals and huge carved wooden cabinets in the sacristy are a sight to behold. A must...

Relics are objects, usually part of the body or clothes, remaining as a memorial of a departed saint and their veneration is associated with many other religious systems besides Christianity.

I visited this 16th century Jesuit church between the Duomo and the Scala theatre and after the vastness of the Duomo, I just  loved its intimacy and the ease with which I could take in all it's charms.it's solemn, it's harmonious, and the carved walnut confessionals and sacristy walls are rich and sumptuous. I wasn't expecting to find a museum... More

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
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 expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
