San Luigi Gonzaga basilica, the biggest neoclassical basilica in Milan. Sorry no picture of the interiors here, I will go and shot some picture to show you because the church is really big and worth it!

Internal picture taken to me today. There was a mass when I stepped in and so I tried to be quick and effective. The result wasn't really satisfatory but still...
