An impressive octagonal Mannerist church, built during the 16th century and containing a nice frescoed dome. It is a civic temple and thus managed both by religious and civic institutions.

In the heart of Milan, 5 minutes from Piazza Duomo, this small church will surprise you. Round shaped, beautiful inside, full of paintings and statues. absolutely worth a visit while in Milan.

You think it is another church in Milan. It is ture, but this one is very nicely decorated inside, and from outside the octagonal form is pretty unsual.

Another church? Should we have a look inside? Well, yes, you should. The interior is beautiful and one of the most decorated that we visited but you wouldn't think so if you were passing. It's also circular in shape so very unusual. If you're not...More

From the outside this is not an overly impressive church. It is quite small compared to other churches in Milan. It is not overly decorated inside but the domed ceiling has been exquisitely painted

San Sebastiano is a small church, but the interior is quite impressive. It feels peaceful and it is worth taking the time to wander around and admire the religious decorations. The domed ceiling is lovely.
