  Piazza San Babila, Milan
by antistar

The Piazza San Babila is a pleasant little square at the heart of Milan's fashion and shopping district. Its most striking building is its namesake church the Basilica of San Babila. This was originally built in the 11th century, but the current Romanesque/Baroque style dates from its restoration in the 19th century. The lion column (Leone di Porta Renza) at the front was added in 1626, and symbolically points towards Porta Venezia.

Directions: Walk out of the Piazza Duomo up Corso Vittorio Emanuele and the Piazza San Babila is the next square you will come across.
