San Francesco di Paola review Rate it

Displaying an almost divine sense of irony, this charming baroque church constructed by the Minimi fathers (a particularly ascetic Franciscan order founded in 1506) lies right in the heart of the wealthiest and most ostentatious part of Milan. Its attractive baroque façade (completed in 1891) plays with concave and convex forms; inside, in addition to the classic marble altars, gilded woodwork and detailed stucco, you'll find a painting in the vault by Carlo Maria Giudici showing the glory of San Francesco di Paola, the church's patron saint.
