The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

This monument stands in tribute to Saint John of Nepomuk, who was ordered killed by King Wenceslaus of Bohemia for refusing to violate the Seal of the Confessional.

The monument is a stone sculpture and a fairly standard depiction of the saint wearing his bishops attire, holding an open bible in his left arm and holding a cross in his right, held up to the heavens.

Worth a look if in Piazza d'Armi of Sforza Castle, otherwise I wouldn’t go out of the way.

Located in the grounds of Castello Sforzesco, the staue is of Saint Giovanni Nepomuceno, or Saint John of Nepomuk, who was drowned in a river on the orders of King Wenceslaus IV after he refused to give the king details of his wife's confessional. The statue is made of stone and is symbolic for the sanctity of the confessional.

Saint John of Nepomuk is the patron saint of Bohemia. The Czech priest who was born in the 14th century and canonized by Pope Benedict XIII in 1729.

This statue is in the courtyard of the Sforzesco Castle. It was one of three statues in Milan depicting the same saint, this is the only one that has survived.
