S. Eustorgio, the Portinari Chapel & the Canals
View of Naviglio Grande
The Basilica of S. Eustorgio, known as the church of the Three Wise Men, besides being a beautiful example of Lombard Gothic style offers also one of the most stunning Renaissance chapels of Milano, the so called Cappella Portinari, built at he expense of a Florentine banker and painted by the great Lombard artist Vincenzo Foppa.
A tour for those who like getting off the beaten track and discovering hidden and somewhat underestimated gems but, at the same time, do not want to miss a cool spot like the Naviglio Grande, Milan’s oldest canal. Cod. 016-EUPRC.
