San Gottardo in Corte or San Gottardo a Palazzo is a church in Milan, northern Italy.

It was built as Ducal Chapel by Azzone Visconti in 1330, and finished in 1336, as indicated by an inscription on the walls. It was originally dedicated to the Blessed Virgin but Azzone, who had gout, later changed the dedication to St. Gotthard of Hildesheim, patron of those with gout. The design was by Francesco Pecorari from Cremona.

The octagonal bell tower has the first example of public clock.
