Chiesa di Santa Maria Podone


Piazza Borromeo, 6, 20123 Milano


The church of Santa Maria Podone, located in the immediate surroundings of the 5VIE crossroads, is a Greek Orthodox church.

It is one of the oldest churches in Milan, having been founded during the ninth century. In fact, it was already consecrated in the year 871, according to an ancient parchment from that year.

The church has this name because the land on which it was built was donated by a Milanese nobleman, a certain Vuerolfo known as Pedone or Podone, son of Ercmario of Milan. Over the centuries it has undergone various modifications; for example, the chapel was added only in 1440 by the Borromeo family and the bell tower is from the 16th century, the work of Pellegrino Tibaldi.
