Sant'Alessandro in Zebedia in a mid nineteenth-century print.

Sant'Alessandro in Zebedia is a church in Milan, northern Italy.

Its construction for the Barnabite order began in 1601 to a design by Lorenzo Binago, Francesco Maria Richini also contributing to the project. It comprises a principal building on the Greek cross plan with a central dome, and a separate presbytery which also has a dome. The façade, with decorations in bas-relief, has two campaniles.

The interior includes works by important Lombard Baroque artists including Camillo Procaccini (an Assumption, a Nativity and a Crucifixion) and Daniele Crespi (a Flagellation).
