San Marco review Rate it

San Marco was built in 1254 by the Augustinian Lanfranco Settala on the site of an earlier church that the Milanese had dedicated to Venice's patron, St Mark. This gesture was to express their thanks to the Venetians for their intervention in the battle against Frederick Barbarossa. The church's façade was redone by Carlo Maciachini, a champion of the neo-Gothic revival; inside, nine chapels provide a survey of 16th- and 17th-century Lombard painting.
