During our search for La Scala, we wondered into Chiesa di San Fedele. The space is wonderfully quiet and solemn. The unobtrusive exterior does not do justice to the exquisite beauty inside. It is churches like these that serve to remind us that these are...More

Lovely little church, very near the Duomo. Adjacent to the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, so it's quite easy to find.

Brilliant baroque Jesuit church built in 1569, with Pellegrino Tibaldi as architect. Tibaldi studied under Michelangelo who was busy at that time with the Sistine Chapel. In many aspects San Fedele (Saint Fidelis) is similar to the Gesu in Rome. The outside is a simple...More

The Jesuit church was built in the 16th century, mostly by architect Pellegrino Tibaldi. It is a modest and harmonious building designed in typical Catholic Counter-Reformation style. Simple and elegant building located at the nice and equally elegant square.

Chiesa di San Fedele is one of the smaller churches, and compared to the Duomo it would be just a little chapel! Nevertheless it's a lovely building, both outside as well as in the interior, and it's worth having a look in if you are...More

An older more staid Milan church in a great location near the Duomo. About 40 years old and has undergone some modern upgrades/preservation efforts. The Milanese call this a typical “counter-reformation” church. I liked it for its cool setting, its austerity compared to other Milan...More

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...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...More
