- Church San Babila
The oldest documents that demonstrate the existence of the Basilica San Babila date from the year 1099. The parchment shows that Berengarius, son of Ambrose, dedicated some of his possessions to the Church.
The church was built in Romanesque style and supported in the course of its history, at least two radical changes with Baroque influences and architectural structures, pictorial decorations and sculptures from the 19th Century.
In front of church Robecco created the lion pillar in the year 1626. The "Leone di Porta Renza" is directed symbolically towards Porta Venezia.
