"San Carlo Al Corso" Chiesa San Carlo al Corso - Church Tip by lina112

 
 

The present basilica of San Carlo al Corso, cosidered the final work of the neo-classical movement not only in Milan but also in the whole of Italy, stands on the site of the ancient church of Santa Maria de Servi, built in 1317. Inaugurated in 1847, the basilica in neoclasical style, is inspired in its circular designs, by the Pantheon in Rome, not only in the cupola which is as large as the body of the church, but also the internal exedras and the 36 monolithic Baveno granite columns which border the piazza

La actual basílica de San Carlo al Corso, considerada la obra capital del movimiento neoclásico, no solo en Milán sino también en toda Italia, se levanta en el área de la antigua iglesia de Santa María de los Siervos edificada en el año 1317. Inaugurada en 1847, la basílica en estilo neoclásico, se inspira por sus motivos circulares en el Panteón de Roma, no sólo por la grosa cúpula sino también por el cuerpo de la iglesia, además de las exedras internas y de las 36 columnas monolíticas de granito de Baveno que definen la plaza.
