MONZA-Chiesa di Santa Marta

The Oratory of Santa Marta - also built by the Humilati in the 13th century - is the remnant of two old convents pulled down during the early 1920s. They were the convents of the White Nuns and of St. Michael, both used as hospitals for the poor. The two buildings, placed very close to the Longobard Church of San Michele, were attached but each had its own cloister. A poor house run by a confraternity and Mount of Piety that was approved by Pope Leone X were also founded near the complex.

Only late evidence of the original 14th-century Church of Santa Marta is still present, namely part of the choir built in the 18th century that today is ingloriously incorporated in a building from the last century.
