Finding Peace of Heart in Milan

At the beginning of this Holy Week I want to share with you a little bit of Milan with its old, majestic and mystical churches. Although I thought I was going to visit ‚the capital of fashion’, such places as Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio (built in the 4th century), the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci in the refectory of the Convent Santa Maria delle Grazie or famous Milan Cathedral made me feel like visiting the cradle of Christianity. My time in Milan was calm, peaceful, meditative. I tried to reflect that in my pictures. Enjoy my modest gallery:

„Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me.”

„Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights”


Milano, Italy (4)


“The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear?”


Milano, Italy (7)


„The God of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed”




„When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”




„For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”


Milano, Italy (9)


„Receive your sight, your faith has healed you.”



„God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

„And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying.”



„So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.”

Have a blessed Holy Week!


BTW do you know that this is exactly the hundredth post on the blog? Time flies! 🙂

  1. Looks beautiful! Everybody tells me that the Duomo is way smaller than you’d expect it!

    • It seems that you need to check it personally 🙂

    • Standing in front if it you feel so tiny in comparison to the enormous building! So I wouldn’t say it is smaller than what you’d expect 😉

  2. Beautiful pictures! I have never been to Milan before, but need to change it as soon as possible. Actually, I was about to go there last year (1 day trip from nearby ski resort), but after finding out, I can’t see the Last Supper, I postponed my visit. Congratulations for 100 posts!

    • Haha, right, it’s not so easy to see the Last Supper. I remember booking the entrance time before my trip and it was so difficult that my travel companion had to book another date, because there was no place for 2 people in any group!

    Beautiful pictures and beautiful places.

  4. Amazing piece of architecture. Never ‚ve been to Milan, but I’d love to see this church for sure!

  5. I wanted to go to Milano once, when I was travelling to Itlay.. but I chose to explore Bergamo. Now I see that Milano is also beautiful 🙂

    • Bergamo is a great place to visit. I’ve seen it just before the dusk and it was simply breathtaking!

  6. Very nice pictures! Somehow you’ve captured spirituality. And the cathedral is beautiful, specially the roof – I’d loved that.

    A very inspiring post, Isabela. I love the pictures. I’ll be in Milan in May and would like to visit the Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio.

  8. Ah, I loved the Duomo. It is as magnificent on the inside as it is on the outside. I only regret not climbing to the roof as I can imagine how beautiful the view can be. Honestly, I found it a bit too overcrowded with people, so I can’t really say I found it peaceful.
