What to visit
Duomo Di Milano
Located in the homonymous square, Il Duomo is one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world, whose interior is capable of housing more than 40,000 people. They highlight the colorful stained glass windows depicting scenes from the Bible and the statue of the Apostle Bartholomew. In addition, it is currently possible to climb the roof of the cathedral, from which you can enjoy the spectacular views of the city.
Santa Maria delle Grazie Church
Only 20 minutes walk separates the Plaza del Duomo from the convent in whose dining room is one of the most important works of art history: The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. Due to the damage caused by World War II, this fresco requires constant maintenance, so visits to this place are scheduled and limited.
San Maurizio Church
The Church of San Maurizio is a very well preserved monument whose origin dates back to the 15th century. On its walls there are numerous and colorful works of art that narrate the life of Jesus. Also noteworthy is the beauty of choir stalls and the spectacular organ of the year 1554, whose melody can be enjoyed in some scheduled concerts and other special occasions.
Colonne Di San Lorenzo.
In front of the Basilica of San Lorenzo we find the columns of San Lorenzo. They are a set of 16 marble columns 7 meters high that were formerly part of a Roman building from the II-III century.
They are very important, among other reasons, because they resisted the attacks of the Goths and the bombings of World War II. For the Milanese they have a great sentimental value, since they have witnessed the history of their city.
This construction is one of the most emblematic places of the city. Built in the fourteenth century, it protected the city from the entrance of the invaders and was one of the most important icons of the city's prosperity. Located in the well-known Piazza Castello, the castle is divided into different areas, in which you can not only visit its large courtyard and its spectacular galleries, but also find Artistic Museums (composed of several museums such as Decorative Arts), the Museum of Prehistory and Protohistory, the Museum of Ancient Art, the Egyptian Museum and La Pinacoteca.
Royal Palace of Milan
This building is one of the most important monuments of the city, since it was the seat of the city government for a long time. It is currently a luxurious and elegant cultural and artistic center in which art exhibitions are held. It also offers the opportunity to take a historical tour of the city through its museum and visit the iconic Sala de las Cariátides.
This cemetery is one of the most visited places in the city for its great artistic and cultural value. More than a graveyard it is considered an open-air museum, in which, a short distance from the Stazione Garibaldi, you can see impressive sculptures, Greek temples, obelisks and other original works throughout its 250,000 square meters, made from the nineteenth century to our times.
Ambrosian art gallery
The construction of this place was started in 1618 with the aim of inspiring the young artists of the Counter Reformation. It is one of the oldest places in Italy, where we can delight in the works of Botticelli, Caravaggio, Da Vinci and Titian, among others. In addition, its interior also houses the Accademia del Disegno and the Ambrosiana Library. Among the more than 750000 volumes and manuscripts of the latter, we can find more than 1000 pages of the Leonardo Da Vinci Codex Atlánticus.
Pinacoteca di Brera
Located a few streets away from Sforza Castle, this art gallery is one of the most important Italian art collections in the world. It contains more than 400 works of art, including those of artists such as Bernini, Rembrandt, Rubens, Van Dyck and El Greco, among others. It is also worth noting the beauty of the inner courtyard of the building.
A short distance from the Duomo, we find the Piazza Mercanti, which, in the Middle Ages, constituted the commercial and governmental center of Milan but nowadays it is a historical place composed of curious buildings, among which we find the Palazzo della Ragione, under which the city's daily market took place, or the Palazzo delle Scuole Palatine, which became the most prestigious school in Milan during the Middle Ages.
