Snaps from Milan - Sant'Ambrogio

Heading down from the Duomo towards Parco Sempione you might not notice this statue in Via Mercanti. It's of Sant'Ambrogio, known in English as Saint Ambrose, who is the patron saint of Milan. He was an archbishop of Milan, and one of the most important figures in the Church during the 4th century. His feast day is the 7th of December, and as with other cities around the country and their patron saints, it's a bank holiday for the city.
