Next to Milan's Central Station, at the beginning of Viale Andrea Doria, are the remains of the Cascina Pozzonbelli. The complex was built in 1498 in a Lombard, Renaissance style, probably on an ancient monastic building from the Congregazione degli Umiliati, which was bought and transformed into a home for the Pozzonbelli, a Milanese noble family. Behind an elegant portico with rounded arches on columns are a small oratory and the remains of a complex which was once much larger. Mostly destroyed in 1907, the chapel still features remains of a fresco and the elegant portico vaults.
