  • Not everyone knows that the Basilica of San Nazaro Apostolorum was built by the Bishop of Milan Saint Ambrose and not yet at the end of 300 ad. Another particularity: it is the oldest Church in Latin cross in the history of Western art! Upon entering you will first visit the Trivulzio Chapel, octagonal in shape by Bramantino. Then you enter the real Basilica of the Apostles. Lovely Chapel of Saint Catherine decorated with beautiful fresco by Bernardino Lanino and polychrome glass of Luke from Leiden. Don't miss a visit to the crypt below and the Archaeological Park with burials outside the Basilica. To underline how the whole visit is completely free of charge thanks to the volunteer members to the cultural heritage of TCI.

  • Many times they are in that area and although outwardly not attracted me I entered at the entrance looks like a normal Church then my wife calls me and shows me on the left St Catherine's chapel decorated by b. Lanino and a last supper by the same author. Worth a visit

  • Beautiful and old, one of the oldest churches of Milan. This 14 21, but it was built on the site of the Church existed with 382 a year, I have this date even in the head does not fit. It will be interesting to people who love and appreciate the medieval buildings. Inside there are ancient frescoes.
