Ancient history inside the church

I like the ancient atmosphere in the church. Great paintings and peaceful place to visit. Good place to spend some quiet time when shopping.

This is a lovely church, tucked away in a rather placid area of Milan. While the interior of the church is lovely, what is more striking is the brownish-orange colour of its exterior, which serves as a beautiful contrast to the painting over the church's door. A 5-minute visit would suffice, if you are in the area, but don't go... More

we visited this church by accident, on a hot and muggy summer morning, while strolling aimlessly around the posh old part of town. it was an unexpected find. compared to the cathedral (a short walk to the south and mugged by noisy tourists) this large church (said to be the second largest in Milano) is deserted. during our visit only...

My wife and I stumbled onto this magnificent 13th Century church in Milan on our last morning in Milan taking a brief walk from the Hotel Cavour. The church was begun in the 13th century and added to over the years. It is now undergoing a major rehabilitation but is still open for tourists and services. A church attendant spoke... More

I dont know the history of this church, but it's looks that is was a Synagogue before. A David Star at the facade and inside it's build in 2 parts. The old part ( very Simple with motives that were add later ) and the new part with all Christian decoration.

I would not go out of my way to see this church, but if you're in the area, it is worth a stop. We were at the Brera and took a few moments to walk inside. A lovely, quiet church -- a good place for a few moments of reflection.

Not too far from the Brera Art Museum and worthy of a stop for prayer and reflection. There are several dedicated side alters and a quiet nave. A pleasant hiatus to interrupt a hectic day and bring a few moments of precious solace.

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
Brera
Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an excellent mix between history and modernity, where tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca (galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
