San Carlo al Corso

Milan, Italy

San Carlo al Corso is a neo-classic church in the center of Milan. The church is managed by the Servite Order.

The church facade was designed in 1844 by Carlo Amati and was finished in 1847. It then served as a model for the Chiesa Rotonda in San Bernardino, Switzerland, 1867.

The complex was built to replace Convent of the Servite founded as early as 1290 and later was suppressed in 1799. The new church was built in thanks for the ending a cholera epidemic, and dedicated to Saint Charles Borromeo who was the Bishop of Milan during the time of the bubonic plague in Milan during the 16th century.

Amazing church. The details are amazing. Historically much more interesting than Doumo.

Hidden between the buildings arround it and at the same time located in the heart in Milano, very short walkting distance from the Duomo. The church is impressive. You can take a look inside without need to wait you turn after a lot of other people

Beautiful church, huge and impressive cupola from outside, but not that impressive from inside, I didn't notice many artwork from inside the cupola.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
