We took an honorary first walk around the entire church and then took the elevator to the roof where we met with an unforgettable scene. Astonished by its perfection we couldn't take our eyes of it.
St Charles Borromeo, its most important benefactor, lies buried at its heart.
There are some images from the interior of that great church.
This frightening statue shows poor St. Bartholomew opened muscles and veins with his skin, completely removed from his body, carelessly thrown over the shoulders.
Today, this picture is not in a very good condition and it's constantly getting worse. Of course people are constantly trying to restore it and I hope that the right recipe to preserve this masterpiece will be found.
To be continued....
