most important church of Milan has been commissioned in 1387 by Gian
Galeazzo Visconti, and dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente. It is built on the rests of
the S. Tecla' , one of the first churches in Milan, where the first
Chiristians were baptised. It's a magnific representative of Gothic
architectural style, and it's all made by Candoglia's marble, coming from the
Milan's duke properties.

The Cathedral is open from 7.00 until 19.00. Admission free.
Being in a church, you must wear suitable clothes (not shorts, top etc). It's not allowed to take pictures inside the building; remember to switch off, or at least put in "silence" mode, your mobile phone.
We recommend a visit to the top of the Duomo: you'll see a fantastic panorama of Milan. If you're lucky and it's a sunny and clear day, your sight could reach even the mountains located in the northside, called Resegone and Grigna!
