Chiesa di Santa Maria alla Porta Reviews
This is a church from 1500 or earlier. There are some pieces this old. I would advice anyone to go and see it, even as a monument. It is not necessary to go inside. It is marvelous even by the sight..... more »
It Is a Polish Catholic Church the Holy Mass is celebrated in Polish it Is a place where you can meet a large group of Poles living and working in Milan and around
Church frequented by the faithful of Polish nationality, but not only. Not very big but with statues of good quality, with icons and paintings of north-European origin. It Is a short distance from the Milan stock Exchange in a fairly quiet area but easily reachable by public transport. Thanks to the staircase that leads from the churchyard to the entrances is very scenic, the façade is well maintained and qualitatively appreciable.
