  • A short walk from the University, the oldest monument of Christianity together with the Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio. In the portico of the Church the mausoleum containing the remains of Trivulzio family. Not being able to visit the central part with the Baroque altar because Sunday church service, I could still reach the transept the chapel of Saint Catherine of Alexandria to see the work of Bernardino Lanino inspired by Brunelleschi and the Bramante depicting the beheading of Catherine. Worthy of a visit. BrunoCro

  • very close to the University to the Ca ' Granda, is less known than other early Christian churches of Milan but is definitely worth a visit: for the beautiful apse (early Christian tombs), the Interior nicely restored, the remarkable Renaissance Chapel Trivulzio upon entry, and in General for its history (was with San Simpliciano and other do not store the outside walls with which St. Ambrose had "sacralized" territory)

  • Commissioned by Bishop Ambrose on the Roman road, is an odd example of basilica, ... especially the part of the main entrance ... become later tomb of noble family ... we thought San Carlo to make things right! Very nice view at the back of the apse Romanesque.

  • This amazing ancient church was built by St. Ambrose, starting from 382. It was originally dedicated to the Apostles, and thus known as Basilica Apostolorum.
  • Precious church that was founded by Ambrose and still preserves Paleochristian (the dome plus some inscriptions), Romanic (the main body) and Renaissance (the so-called Cappella Trivulzio at the entrance) construction phases. From the right arm, entrance to some Roman kilns. In the same arm, tomb of a doctor at the Roman imperial court with inscribed epigrams in Greek and Latin.
  • Beautiful church with some outstanding art.
  • Worth a visit
  • Important Basilica dated the first consecration in 386 a.d. to see absolutely.
