It is held that before even the 9th century church which was replaced by the building you see today, there was a Roman Pretorium in which the martyr Sant'Alessandro was held prisoner. The current church was built in the early 17th century by Lorenzo Binago and Francesco Maria Richini. The pretty facade is known for its bas reliefs and two campaniles. Inside, the decorations are mostly by Lombard Baroque artists, a lavish ornamentation of bas reliefs, frescoes, and gilding work. The main altar is of a rare marble, and studded with semi-precious stones.

  • Beautiful church... little hard to find

  • Worth a visit

  • Beautiful church.

  • Chiesa cattolica del 1960 situata nel centro di Milano, molta bella da visitare con calma e attentamente. Si chiama così perché si narra che in quel luogo vi era il carcere Zebedia dove fu tenuto prigioniero S. Alessandro

  • Una Chiesa di culto Cattolico,situata in una Piazza molto suggestiva e tranquilla,nel Centro Srorico di Milano.L'interno è stupendo ben illuminato,si possono ammirare le Cappelle Barocche con dei bellissimi dipinti,un grande Cristo in Croce che lascia senza parole.Si può guardare la Chiesa,seduti all'esterno del Bar Principe nella Piazza Sant'Alessandro, dove la colazione diventa piacevole, sia per la tranquillità del luogo che per le buonissime brioche.Sono da provare anche i panini e gli ottimi Cocktail.
