The Duomo, symbol of Milan in the world, is one of the largest cathedrals in Italy and Europe. Patrimony of Milanese people and humanity, over the centuries it has been expressing, with its magnificence, the devotion of humanity toward the Divine, involving future generations in an endless commitment. The Milan Cathedral, besides being an artistic monument, is a privileged place of prayer, deeply linked to the memory and teachings of the Bishops who succeeded on St. Ambrose’s chair, and to the history of the millions of worshippers who, every year, gather in this place to celebrate the Sacred Mysteries. The Cathedral is the mother Church of the Diocese, having a symbolic role of exemplarity both in the life of the city worship, and in relation with the Diocese activity.
The Duomo Terraces are one of the most charming places in Milan. From a height of about 50 meters, it is possible to admire the extraordinary panorama of the city, crowned by a myriad of statues, spires, crests and flying buttresses. Covered by plates of Candoglia marble, the Terraces extend on a surface of 8.000 square meters. From here an unusual point of view over the Duomo architecture and a unique view can be enjoyed, especially on bright days, when the gaze could even reach the Alps and the Apennine Mountains on the horizon.
The Grande Museo del Duomo includes 27 halls on over 2.000 square meters, inside Palazzo Reale, and displays a heritage of unexpected variety: sculptures, stained glass, paintings, tapestries and architectural models, dating from the XIV century on. Here many marble statues are displayed, the originals from the Duomo. And models and sketches from the storage of the Veneranda Fabbrica del Duomo; and, finally, the Treasure of the Cathedral with liturgical objects, extremely precious, some of which still in use during religious rites.
S. Giovanni alle Fonti Baptistery – Archeological Area
The S. Giovanni alle Fonti Baptistery, together with the remains of S. Tecla, constitutes the archeological area underneath the floor of the Duomo. It is one of the fundamental places of the history and identity of Milan; religious centre of the city at the time of Ambrose, who in this very place baptised Augustine, the site represents an extraordinary cultural and spiritual heritage of Milan. It was built in the IV Century by St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, and demolished in 1387 to make place to the Cathedral. It was forgotten and discovered again only in 1961, during the works of construction of the underground.
