Milan is home to a huge number of museums, in which you can see unique historical artifacts and art objects. Castello Sforzesco is now home for a beautiful museum, which houses collections of rare paintings and sculptures. Besides this, the halls of the museum are decorated by very rare and precious museum pieces - antique furniture and tapestries. Poldi Pezzoli Museum is located in one of the oldest mansions in Milan. Several centuries ago the house belonged to a well-known collector, who initially had an irresistible passion for armor and knight ammunition, but later began collecting rare and precious paintings. Nowadays everyone can see this wonderful collection created by Poldi-Pezzoli.
Church of St. Lorenzo is a truly striking religious attraction. Every year the church is visited by thousands of pilgrims. One of the greatest artists - Michelangelo – worked over painting and decorating the walls of the church. Church of St. Lorenzo has the full right to be considered one of the most beautiful churches in the world. The main relic of the cathedral, which is the object of worship of pilgrims, is a vessel with the blood of St. Lorenzo. Only one time a year the priceless relic is exhibited to the public. Pilgrims from many different countries come here to see the sacred item.
