  • Externally the Church has a square plan and traces the history of more than 1500 years. Also architectural style undergoes several alterations over the centuries thus assuming early Christian, Romanesque and Renaissance characteristics ranging from. The Interior is rich in mysticism in an atmosphere that takes you to the crypt (explored) which shows the history of the building. Strikes and ' is truly unique the cross plan basilica, only at the time of its construction in the Western line which was the symbol of the triumph of Christ over death and victory of Ambrose's Church on the Arian heresy and paganism.

  • 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.

  • 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.
