What people are saying:

Passing through the Marino Palace from Via Manzoni, you will come to a small square called "San Fedele" where road enclosure construction is being implemented. There is a statue in the center. It turns out to be "Manzoni" on Manzoni Street, and the full name is "Alessandro Manzoni". The building behind is the "St. Peter's Church", a Jesuit church built in 1559. The exterior is also beautiful, free to visit, and the murals inside are also good. If you think there are too many people in Milan Duomo, it’s a good choice to stop here and have a cup of coffee.

    Charm

    Small church with nice art work. Intimate feel, altar ornate. Not a destination but if walking by, do stop.
