Churches Milan

Some are famous all over the world, others known only to a few, all of which hide great surprises of art and architecture

Churches Milan. Use this guide to get all the necessary information for discovering relevant churches in Lombardy.

Cultural tourism in Milan often includes visiting  ancient masterworks of art and architecture in the Region. Start visiting churches in Milan with the Cathedral, known locally as the Duomo, go upsides amid its spiers, watch the statue of the Madonnina and pass by its museum. 

Visiting churches in Milan usually means to discover the works of genius artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Bramante d'Urbino and Bernini. 

Just think about churches like that of Santa Maria delle Grazie guarding The Last Supper, or the one of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore and a series of frescoes influenced by the Renaissance master. 

One of the locals' most beloved temples is undoubtedly the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio. Stop by the square and look for the Devil's pillar. Legend says that it withstood the fight between the Saint and the Evil One and that hellish voices can be heard by placing your ear upon its surface. 

Lombardy harbors plenty of curiosities in its places of worship. Ever wondered why the San Eustorgio bell tower has an eight-pointed star? To let devotees know it guards relics from the Magi. 

Consider these interesting attractions to better enjoy tourism in Milan.
