Milan's cathedral interiors, picture by Gullwing Photography.
I have to admit that gothic isn't exactly my preferred architectural style, often too "chaotic" and creepy,
but I have to admit that this one is great!

I really love this thread. I just spent a couple of weeks exploring the churches of Venice and Rome. I really have to visit Milan!

Thank you! Yes it is a very stratificated city, from ancient roman/paleochristian monuments to XX and XXI century architecture...a very original blend that really surprise the wise traveller (and might disappoint the ones looking for a stereotypical southern european city )

San Maurizio Monastry, one of my fave:

thank you!

Ok this is not actually Milan, is located 20 km southern of the centre of Milan, and some 15 km from the formal urban area of the municipality of Milan.
It is the Certosa di Pavia, but since it is very related to the milanese Visconti and Sforza family it is generally linked with the city.
It is a pure masterpiece of late gotic/early renaissance style, a joy for the eyes!



Renaissance sculptures and carvings: what else?



























Ludovico il Moro's renaissance tomb:





his wife: Beatrice d'Este



Gian Galeazzo Visconti's Tomb:



ancient wooden choir:



Lesser cloister:





Grand cloister:

Thank you!
San Camillo has really gorgeous neogothic interiors!

Here you are a little ancient chapel from medieval Milan: the Cascina Linterno chapel.
The "cascina" it is a typical rural building of the lombard landscape: it is a complex of building articulated around central yards, and they become very usual since the XVI century. Around the urbanized area of Milan, and only considerating the muncipality area, there are at least 100 Cascinas. here you are some information about those typical historical buildings.

thank you!

San Babila prepositural basilica, originally built in IX century above a church from IV century, which was built above a...pagan roman temple dedicated to the Sun. This last version of this basilica you see right now is from XIX century. Here you are the apsis mosaics:
