Churches we saw last year in Milan

We stayed four days in Milan in March, 2009.  Here are some photos of some of the churches we visited. The first few churches are those we encountered during a walk around the neighborhood of our hotel. Then we took the Metro the next day to central Milan and visited the Duomo, a magnificent cathedral. One of the other churches we visited was Santa Maria delle Grazie where we were able to view Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper.

St Gregory the Great

This church was just a block from our hotel

just a few steps from the Metro -- what a view!

There are more than 1000 statues on the outside Duomo walls.

    Again great set of photos from churches. I enjoyed them all. Maybe that is due that I have visited in Milan, but many years ago. In these photos we can see that these parishes are rich. Thank You for presenting them to us to be enjoyed.

    If You do not mind I give my links to more poor parishes in my country. In these churches there are thing that cannot be found anywhere else.
