Milan

Sant'Angelo (officially Santa Maria degli Angeli) is a church in Milan, Lombardy, northern Italy, belonging to the Franciscan Order.

The church was constructed in the mid-16th century by the Spanish general and Governor Milan Ferrante Gonzaga, over an edifice already existing in 1418, in replacement of the eponymous one, which had been destroyed to build the new walls. The design was by Domenico Giunti. The small bell tower is from 1607, while the façade was finished only in 1630, in late-Mannerist style. The church is one of the few in the city which has not been restored in "neo-medieval" style during the 19th century.
