Chiesa Santa Maria Presso San Satiro - Church, Milan: 4 reviews and 10 photos
First built in 876, the church was dedicated to St. Satyrus, brother of St. Ambrose. Later the church was called to St. Mary, so nowadays its name is after both of them - Santa Maria Presso di San Satiro.
The church was very important in the 13th and 14th centuries, after news spread through Christendom that an image of the Madonna here shed real blood when stabbed.
San Satiro was later perfected by Bramante, demonstrating his command of proportion and perspective, keynotes of Renaissance architecture.
