- This ancient convent for nuns in the Umiliate order was founded in the second half of the 12th century on the site of the Roman arena. Of the original building, all that remains is the 15th century courtyard (restored in 1920), a typical example of claustral architecture of that period. The Umiliati order was suppressed by Carlo Borromeo in 1571 because it did not adhere entirely to the indications decreed by the Council of Trent.
