Milan Cathedral is the house of God church of Milan, Lombardy, Italy. Committed to St Mary of the Nativity it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan, right now Archbishop Mario Delpini. The house of prayer took about six centuries to finish.
It is the biggest church in Italy and the third biggest in the world.Milan's format, with roads either emanating from the Duomo or surrounding it, uncovers that the Duomo involves what was the most focal site in Roman Mediolanum, that of people in general basilica confronting the discussion. The main house of God, the "new basilica" devoted to St Thecla, was finished by 355.
It appears to share, on a somewhat littler scale, the arrangement of the contemporaneous church as of late rediscovered underneath Tower Hill in London. An abutting basilica was raised in 836. The old octagonal baptistery, the Battistero Paleocristiano, dates to 335 and still can be gone to under the Milan Cathedral.
