  • If you are in Milan a stopover for visiting of this Roman Catholic basilica is definitely recommended. It is located in piazza Sant'Eustorgio, Ticinese area. It is thought to have been founded in the 4th century. According to legend Sant'Eustorgio the built to house the relics of the Magi, currently kept in a glass case, at the sarcophagus of the Magi, inside the basilica. From the thirteenth century, the basilica became the headquarters of the Dominican order in Milan. The original façade of the basilica, dates back to the 12th century. At the back of the church you can admire the Bell Tower on top of which is placed a star with 8 bits, symbol of the star that guided the Magi to Bethlehem. The Interior of the basilica is divided into three naves topped by cross vaults. Inside is a stone statue of Sant'Eugenio dating back to the 13th century and numerous relics and reliquaries, votive objects and frescoes. Awesome to see also the pipe organ. Do not miss the visit within the early Christian Cemetery whose archaeological excavations were conducted in the years ' 50 and ' 60 in the 20th century. It is possible to admire gravestones and vases. Also worth seeing are the chapels attached including the Portinari Chapel, in Renaissance style and built in 1642. Inside there is an extensive cycle of frescoes of the fifteenth century, the work of Vincenzo Foppa. I also recommend a visit to the Diocesan Museum in the cloister of Sant'Eustorgio. With one ticket you can visit the Diocesan Museum and the Museum of the Basilica of Sant'Eustorgio. The ticket is valid 30 days from the date of issue and allows only one entry for each part of the museum complex. Definitely recommend a visit.

  • Very nice church with relicts of the Magi. And it is definitely worth paying a small admission for a the Portinari chapel with a tomb of Saint Peter Martyr. You'll also get to the catacombs!
  • We passed this beautiful quiet church a few times prior to visiting and was always intrigued by it. The outside is actually more beautiful than the inside. About 3 euros for entry i think and that will get you in the church and museum. Certainly a must visit.
  • A fascinating ancient church. Full of misteries
  • Remarkable.
