San Carlo al Corso
There is an open area towards Piazza San Babila on Corso Vittorio Emanuele, onto which the impressive church of San Carlo al Corso looks. It was designed by the Neo-Classical architect, Carlo Amati, 1839-47.

The high Corinthian portico frames the facade and connects it to the Corso. The round church has a high dome (36.9 meters) and was built during 1843-47 by Felice Pizzagalli. Inside, the large round space with double order of columns is surrounded by a series of niches and chapels in stately Neo-Classical style.
