Photographer's Note

Along the left bank of the Naviglio Grande (see my photo), is the church of S. Cristoforo. Once nobility stopped in this place before reaching their country houses being this a reverenzial act. This building is formed by two adjoining constructions which are still identifiable. The one on the left, dates possibly from the end of the 7th century and the ducal chapel was added to it in 1398 at the request of the duke on the time of a long famine. This is one of the most typical examples of Gothic Lombard style both inside and outside. The paintings from the fifteenth and early sixteenth century are particularly interesting. This church is very loved by Milanese guys. All people, infact, went there at the end of 1300 as wow to thank for having avoided the famine.
