The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The church of the Polish community
Apr 2021
This ancient church was built more than 1000 years ago and was seriously damaged during bombing of Second World War as you can see beside the church the remains of old parts and the frescoe of Madonna del Grembiule.
The triangular tympanum by Borromini that adorns the beautiful Baroque facade, alternating between the Corinthian and Ionian Orders of columns, protects the exquisite high-relief by Carlo Simonetta, built in 1670 and depicting the Assumption of Mary .
The single nave is not very wide and has four side chapels adorned with white marble statues; the altar of Magdalene is decorated by Stefano Sampietro; in the sacristy is the work by Camillo Procaccini.
Santa Maria alla Porta is chantry for the Polish-speaking parishioners as shown on a plaque located at the side of the entrance.
Inside you can admire a copy of Black Madonna of Częstochowa

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 outside.
