There are lots of beautiful churches in Milano... hidden by Prada, Dolce e Gabbana, Armani and Versace.

Thank you for the effort tommolo.

Thank you Joga!

Milan deserves much more attention than it does. It is a complicate city that hides its absolute gems and than complains when tourists thinks that there are not so many monuments to see...when the city itself could easily compete with every artistical world class destination outside Italy, even if the "big four" italian cities (rome, naples, venice and florence) may be out of reach for milan in a classical/artistical way...

San Paolo Converso:
