Il Duomo di Milano è una chiesa, monumento simbolo del capoluogo lombardo e uno dei simboli d'Italia, dedicata a Santa Maria Nascente, situata nell'omonima piazza, nel centro della metropoli. Per superficie è la terza chiesa cattolica nel mondo dopo San Pietro in Vaticano e la cattedrale di Siviglia. È la cattedrale dell'arcidiocesi di Milano ed è sede della parrocchia di Santa Tecla nel Duomo di Milano.StoriaUna nuova cattedrale europeaNel luogo in cui sorge il Duomo un tempo si trovavano l'antica cattedrale di Santa Maria Maggiore, cattedrale invernale, e la basilica di Santa Tecla, cattedrale estiva. Dopo il crollo del campanile, l'arcivescovo Antonio de' Saluzzi, sostenuto dalla popolazione, promosse la ricostruzione di una nuova e più grande cattedrale (12 maggio 1386), che sorgesse sul luogo del più antico cuore religioso della città. Per il nuovo edificio si iniziò ad abbattere entrambe le chiese precedenti: Santa Maria Maggiore venne demolita per prima, Santa Tecla in un secondo momento, nel 1461-1462 (parzialmente ricostruita nel 1489 e definitivamente abbattuta nel 1548).
Poco più di cento anni fa il Beato Cardinale Ferrari consacrava la nostra chiesa e la poneva sotto la protezione della Madonna di Caravaggio. La nostra parrocchia per questa specifica connotazione mariana fu scelta dai nostri pastori per divenire santuario dove decine e decine di persone ogni anno vengono per trovare pace e conforto tra le braccia amorevoli della Madre aumentando così la propria fede e il proprio amore per Cristo. Nel 1979 poi la nostra chiesa viene elevata a rango di basilica romana minore dal Beato Giovanni Paolo II.
Una bella chiesa quindi! Tuttavia non è fatta solo di mattoni ma soprattutto di pietre vive: i fratelli e le sorelle che frequentano la nostra parrocchia e che in questo Anno della fede vogliono divenire sempre più portatori di Dio e del suo Amore. Se quindi non sei ancora venuto... la Madonna di Caravaggio ti aspetta per donarti il Suo Figlio!
La basilica di Sant'Eustorgio è una basilica cattolica, situata nell'omonima piazza a Milano, nei pressi di Porta Ticinese.Cenni storiciLa basilica fu fondata probabilmente nel secolo IV. Secondo la tradizione, il carro con cui Sant'Eustorgio trasportava le reliquie dei Magi da Costantinopoli si fermò inspiegabilmente: le ruote erano diventate pesanti come macigni e né buoi né cavalli riuscivano più a muoverle. Così Eustorgio dovette rinunciare all'idea di portare i resti dei Magi nella basilica di Santa Tecla e fece edificare una nuova basilica, fuori le mura cittadine, per ivi deporli. Nel 1162, durante il saccheggio di Milano perpetrato dalle truppe dell'imperatore Federico I di Svevia detto "Barbarossa", le reliquie furono trafugate e portate nella Cattedrale di Colonia. Nel 1904 furono in parte restituite e sono attualmente conservate in una teca presso il sarcofago dei Magi, all'interno della basilica (v. sotto).Dal XIII secolo la basilica divenne la sede principale dell'Ordine domenicano a Milano. Nel 1219 Domenico di Guzman vi aveva inviato i primi due confratelli e l'anno successivo i frati si trasferirono nell'ospedale dei pellegrini presso la basilica, che gli fu definitivamente assegnata dal Papa l'11 aprile 1227. Tra i secoli XV e XVI fu priore della basilica Teodoro da Sovico, noto per il suo confessionario.

The Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio is a church in Milan in northern Italy, which is in the Basilicas Park city park. It was for many years an important stop for pilgrims on their journey to Rome or to the Holy Land, because it was said to contain the tomb of the Three Magi or Three Kings.Probably founded in the 4th century, its name refers to Eustorgius I, the bishop of Milan to whom is attributed the translation of the supposed relics of the Magi to the city from Constantinople in 344. In 1764, when an ancient pillar was removed, a Christian burial was discovered, housing coins of emperor Constans, the son of Constantine the Great.The church was later rebuilt in Romanesque style. In the 12th century, when Milan was sacked by Frederick Barbarossa, the relics of the Magi were appropriated and subsequently taken to Cologne. It was only in 1903/4 that fragments of the bones and garments were sent back to Sant'Eustorgio's. Nowadays they are in the Three Kings altar nearby the empty Three Kings sarcophagus. Still today, in memory of the Three Kings, the bell tower is surmounted by a star instead of the traditional cross.
The Basilica di San Calimero is a church in Milan, northern Italy. Its name refers to Saint Calimerius (died 190 AD), an early bishop of the city. It dates from the 5th century but was almost completely rebuilt in 1882 by the architect Angelo Colla in an attempt to restore it to the "original" medieval structure.What remains of the ancient church include: the 16th century crypt, with a noble frescoed vault by the Fiammenghini; a small fresco with the Madonna and Two Female Saints (15th century, attributed to Cristoforo Moretti) in the apse; a Crucifixion by Il Cerano, and a noteworthy Nativity by Marco d'Oggiono. Other medieval frescoes are in the annexed sacristy.The crypt also houses Calimerius' relics and a pit located in the same place in which the former's bones were found in the water
The Basilica of San Lorenzo Maggiore is an important place of catholic worship located in Milan, within the ring of canals, originally built in Roman times and subsequently rebuilt several times over a number of centuries. Located close to the mediaeval Ticino gate, it is one of the oldest churches in Milan. It is near the city park called Basilicas Park, which includes both the Basilica of San Lorenzo and the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio, as well as the Roman Colonne di San Lorenzo.HistoryOriginsThe basilica was built between the late fourth and early fifth centuries. The exact date is uncertain, as are the name of who commissioned it and the circumstances of its foundation. According to some scholars San Lorenzo was erected to coincide with the “Basilica Portiana”, which was built by the “Augusto of the West” (Valentinian I or Valentinian II) to please the Bishop of Milan Aussenzzio (355–372) of the Arian faith. If this were to be true, San Lorenzo would have preceded the foundation of the four Ambrosian basilicas. Supporting this proposition is the fact that the Basilica Portiana, cited in many sources that were quoting the struggle of Ambrose to remove it from the Arians, has never been identified with certainty by archaeologists.A second proposition gives the date of the foundation of the church to a later period, between 390 and 402, and attributes its commissioning to Theodosius I or Stilicho. Evidence for this proposition comes from archaeological investigations carried out between 2002 and 2004. Supporters of this view are divided as to the function of the building; for some it is an imperial basilica that would have confirmed the role of Milan as the imperial capital of the West, in rivalry with Rome and Constantinople; for others it is a mausoleum for the Theodosian dynasty.
Sant'Alessandro in Zebedia is a church in Milan, Italy.HistoryThe original church was built by the Barnabite order in the 9th century, on the ruins of the Pretorium which tradition holds was the prison that held the martyred Sant'Alessandro.Its construction for the Barnabite order began in 1601 to a design by Lorenzo Binago, Francesco Maria Richini also contributing to the project. It comprises a principal building on the Greek cross plan with a central dome, and a separate presbytery which also has a dome. The façade, with decorations in bas-relief, has two campaniles.The interior includes works by important Lombard Baroque artists including Camillo Procaccini (an Assumption, a Nativity and a Crucifixion) and Daniele Crespi (a Flagellation). There is also an altarpiece in the first chapel on the right by Ossana.
Sant'Antonio abate is a Roman Catholic church in Milan, Italy. The church is located on a street running parallel to Via Festa del Perdono.Built in Mannerist style, construction began in 1582 on the site of an older church. The current appearance of the church is the work of Francesco Maria Richini, carried out in the 17th century.

Basilica of Sant'AmbrogioDistance: 0.8 miTourist Information Piazza Sant'Ambrogio 15 Milan, 20123
The Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio is a church in Milan, northern Italy.HistoryOne of the most ancient churches in Milan, it was built by St. Ambrose in 379–386, in an area where numerous martyrs of the Roman persecutions had been buried. The first name of the church was in fact Basilica Martyrum.When St. Ambrose arrived in Milan, the local churches were in conflict with each other over the conflict between Arianism and the Nicene Creed as well as numerous local issues. He was firmly in support of the Nicene side of the conflict, and wanted to make northern Italy into a pro-Rome stronghold. He did this through both preaching and construction. He built three or four churches surrounding the city; Basilica Apostolorum (now San Nazaro in Brolo), Basilica Virginum (now San Simpliciano), and Basilica Martyrum (which was later renamed in his honor). A fourth church, Basilica Salvatoris (now San Dionigi) is attributed to him as well, but may not actually be from the 4th century. These churches were dedicated with anti-Arian language and as symbols of the wealth and power of the pro-Nicene faction in Milan.In the centuries after its construction, the edifice underwent several restorations and partial reconstructions, assuming the current appearance in the 12th Century, when it was rebuilt in the Romanesque style.Initially, the basilica was outside the city of Milan, but over the following centuries, the city grew up around it. It became a center of religious life and a community of canons developed in the church. In 789, a monastery was established within the basilica grounds. The canons, however, retained their own community and identity instead of fading away. Two, separate, distinct religious communities shared the basilica. In the 11th century, the canons adopted orders and became Canons Regular. There were now two separate monastic orders following different rules living in the basilica. The canons were in the northern building, the cloister of the canons, while the monks were in the two southern buildings.
San Bernardino alle Ossa is a church in Milan, northern Italy, best known for its ossuary, a small side chapel decorated with numerous human skulls and bones.In 1210, when an adjacent cemetery ran out of space, a room was built to hold bones. A church was attached in 1269. Renovated in 1679, it was destroyed by a fire in 1712. A new bigger church was then attached to the older one and dedicated to Saint Bernardino of Siena.HistoryThe church's origins date to 1145, when a hospital and a cemetery were built in front of the basilica of Santo Stefano Maggiore. In 1210 a chamber was built to house bones from the cemetery, next to which a church was built in 1269. It was restored for the first time in 1679 by Giovanni Andrea Biffi, who modified the façade and decorated the walls of the ossuary with human skulls and tibiae.The church was destroyed in 1712; it was replaced by a new edifice designed by Carlo Giuseppe Merlo, featuring a central plan and larger size reflecting the increasing popularity of the ossuary. The new church, connected to the former one by an ambulatory, was entitled to St. Bernardino of Siena.The façade was completed in 1776.OverviewThe interior has an octagonal plan, with Baroque-style decorations. The several chapels have paintings from the 16th-18th centuries.The ossuary's vault was frescoed in 1695 by Sebastiano Ricci with a Triumph of Souls and Flying Angels, while in the pendentives are portrayed the Holy Virgin, St. Ambrose, St. Sebastian and St. Bernardino of Siena. Niches and doors are decorated with bones, in Roccoco style.
Santa Maria presso San Satiro is a church in Milan. The Renaissance structure houses the early-medieval shrine to Satyrus, brother of Saint Ambrose. The church is known for its false apse, an early example of trompe l'œil, attributed to Donato Bramante.HistoryThe church lies on the site of a primitive worship place erected by the archbishop Anspertus in 879, dedicated to Saint Satyrus, confessor and brother of Saints Ambrose and Marcellina. The current church was instead built from 1472 to 1482 under commission from Duchess Bona di Savoia and Duke Gian Galeazzo Maria Sforza. According to some sources, the designer was Donato Bramante, who had recently moved from the Marche. However, recent documents prove that Bramante had a minor role, most of the work being attributable to Giovanni Antonio Amadeo, who designed the façade. It is certain that Bramante is responsible for the sacristy perspective.The edifice has a nave and two aisles with barrel vault. The nave is surmounted by a hemispherical dome at the crossing with the transept. The bell tower is still that of the Romanesque edifice preceding the 1480s reconstruction. Also from the 15th century is the baptistry annexed to the church.
Milan Cathedral is the cathedral church of Milan, Italy. Dedicated to St Mary of the Nativity (Santa Maria Nascente), it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, currently Cardinal Angelo Scola. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the largest church in Italy (the larger St. Peter's Basilica is in the State of Vatican City) and the fifth largest in the world.HistorySt Thecla'sMilan's layout, with streets either radiating from the Duomo or circling it, reveals that the Duomo occupies what was the most central site in Roman Mediolanum, that of the public basilica facing the forum. The first cathedral, the "new basilica" (basilica nova) dedicated to St Thecla, was completed by 355. It seems to share, on a slightly smaller scale, the plan of the contemporaneous church recently rediscovered beneath Tower Hill in London. An adjoining basilica was erected in 836. The old octagonal baptistery, the Battistero Paleocristiano, dates to 335 and still can be visited under the Milan Cathedral. When a fire damaged the cathedral and basilica in 1075, they were rebuilt as the Duomo.
San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore is a church in Milan, northern Italy. It was originally attached to the most important female convent of the Benedictines in the city, Monastero Maggiore, which is now in use as an archaeological museum. The church today is used every Sunday from October to June to celebrate in the Byzantine Rite, in Greek according to the Italo-Albanian tradition. It is also used as concert hall.HistoryThe complex was founded in Lombard times, partially re-using ancient Roman edifices. Of these there remain a polygonal tower, a relic of the ancient Maximian walls, and a square one, originally part of the lost Hippodrome and later adopted as the church’s bell tower. The monastery is now home to Milan's Archaeological Museum.The construction began in 1503 under design of Gian Giacomo Dolcebuono in collaboration with Giovanni Antonio Amadeo. The edifice was finished fifteen years later by Cristoforo Solari, divided into two parts: one for the faithful, one for the nuns. Until 1794 the latter were strongly forbidden to cross the dividing wall.DescriptionThe façade is covered with gray stone from Ornavasso.
La chiesa di San Fedele è un chiesa cattolica di Milano, costruita nel XVI secolo per ordine di san Carlo Borromeo per ospitare la Compagnia di Gesù. Per via dell'aderenza della struttura alle Instructiones di San Carlo Borromeo, così come per l'ampia gamma di citazioni di celebri modelli architettonici del passato e le numerose chiese successive che attingono dalla chiesa, il San Fedele è considerato il modello di riferimento per l'architettura sacra dell'arte della Controriforma.StoriaSituata nel cuore di Milano, fra palazzo Marino e la galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, nell'omonima piazza, la chiesa era un antico edificio di dimensioni ridotte rispetto all'attuale, dedicato a san Fedele, protomartire della diocesi di Como. La chiesa antica era con tutta probabilità già stata edificata su un edificio sacro preesistente che aveva nome di chiesa di Santa Maria in Solariolo o Solario, perché sorgeva proprio a fianco di un edificio medievale che aveva la caratteristica lombarda dei portici nel piano inferiore e una sala con funzioni pubbliche al piano superiore. La chiesa viene citata in una bolla di papa Eugenio III del 1147 col quale la Santa Sede confermava il possesso dell'edificio ai monaci di San Dionigi.
San Giuseppe is a Baroque-style Roman Catholic church in Milan, region of Lombardy, Italy.Construction was begun in 1607 and completed in 1630. The architect was Francesco Maria Richini. The right side of the church overlooks Via Andegari, after a family with this name. It seems that the title of the street comes from the name of a family known as the "Andegardi" or "undegardi".

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.
Sant'Angelo is a church in Milan, Lombardy, northern Italy, belonging to the Franciscan Order.HistoryThe church was constructed in the mid-16th century by the Spanish general and Governor Milan Ferrante Gonzaga, over an edifice already existing in 1418, in replacement of the eponymous one, which had been destroyed to build the new walls. The design was by Domenico Giunti. The small bell tower was added in 1607, while the façade was finished only in 1630, in late-Mannerist or early-Baroque style. The church is one of the few in the city which was not restored in "neo-medieval" style during the 19th century.It has a single nave with side chapels and barrel vault, a transept and a deep presbytery. Artworks include works by Gaudenzio Ferrari (chapel of St. Catherine, now replaced by a copy; the original is in the Pinacoteca di Brera), Antonio Campi (same chapel), Morazzone (a St. Charles Borromeo in Glory), Simone Peterzano (frescoes in the St. Anthony Chapel), Ottavio Semino (Brasca Chapel in the transept), Camillo Procaccini (frescoes in the transept and in several chapels) and Giulio Cesare Procaccini (a Nativity, in the Rococo-style sacristy).
San Bartolomeo is a 19th-century, Roman Catholic church in Milan, region of Lombardy, Italy.HistoryThe architect Maurizio Garavaglia designed the present structure in 1864, replacing a church from 1500s of the same name located a nearby site. An engraving of the former church by Marc'Antonio Dal Re exists. The prior church had an icon depicting the Madonna del Buon Aiuto (Our Lady of Good Help), originally attributed to Lucas Cranach, donated by Countess Teresa Gordone Serbelloni when the Ottoman army was nearing the Siege of Vienna. That church accumulated a number of tombs of the aristocracy. The church was the site of disturbances during riots occurring in 1848. That older church was demolished during urban renewal in the second half of the 19th century.The church contains a neoclassic Monument to Karl Joseph von Firmian, who was plenipotentiary of Austrian Lombardy. The tomb sculpted by Giuseppe Franchi; it was restored after removal by French troops during the Napoleonic occupation.
Santa Maria Incoronata is a church in Milan, Italy. It was completed in 1460.Artworks in the interior include a painting by Bergognone, Christ under the Grill, the tomb of Giovanni Bossi, attributed to Bambaia, a Baroque fresco cycle of the Life of St. Nicholas of Tolentino by Ciro Ferrari, and the Biblioteca Umanistica ("Humanist Library", 15th century). The latter has three naves divided by granite columns, with frescoes of the Magisteri Sacrae Pagines commissioned by the Augustinians when they acquired the building. OF the original gardens and cloisters, only one of the latter has survived.HistoryThe church is formed by two paired buildings. The oldest one existed as early as the communal age and was dedicated to St. Maria di Gargnano. Starting from 1400, a new convent was built annexed to it for the Augustinians, who had the structure restored in late Gothic style. The new church was completed in the same age of the election of Francesco Sforza as duke of Milan 1451, and received the current name (meaning "St. Mary Encrowned") in the occasion. In 1460 the duke's wife, Bianca Maria Visconti, commissione the construction of a new church next to the oldest one, identical and connected to it, in order to create a single, larger edifice.The church was modified in 1654 and 1827, but was restored to the medieval appearance in the early 19th century.
