At the southern end of Piazza San Carlo sits the church of San Carlo. Built in 1619 on behalf of Duke Carlo Emanuele I to honour the Bishop of Milan whom he'd met in his youth. The octagonal domed bell tower was added later in 1779 whilst the fa├žade dates from 1834 and was built by Ferdinando Caronesi. Inside there is a unique central aisle with two bays with cross vaults and two chapels on either side. The sister chapel of Saint Cristina stands close by.
