A few steps from the Duomo is one of the most curious attractions of Milano, built near the Brolo Hospital, once dedicated to the care of lepers, now destroyed.
In 1750 was built the great church in baroque and rococo style, which from the outside seems to be an elegant eighteenth-century palace.
A narrow corridor to the right of the entrance gives access to a small square room where you will find the statue of the Madonna kneeling near the dead Jesus.
The walls of this room are entirely covered with skulls and bones.
The chapel-ossary also has a vault frescoed by Sebastiano Ricci, one of the most important artists of the Italian 18th century.
In the chapel, to the right of the only nave, there is the family tomb of Christopher Columbus.
