  • We went there to visit the crypt, but it was not what we expected. It was expensive for a small crypt (9 Eur at least) and even the audio guide didn't say much and it hardly had any connection with Le...  more »
  • I visited in December the Church of St sepulchre, crypt and the nearby Roman Forum, taking advantage of the extraordinary opening scheduled throughout the month. Definitely worth it because there are so many details to discover and appreciate, the cost of the ticket is acceptable and service from the staff is sufficient even if instead of an audioguide to the vault would be preferable to a guided tour. The crypt is very impressive, maybe it needs a better distribution of panels with more detailed captions what instead is not missing at the Roman Forum that represents a fundamental point of what was once the ancient capital of the Western Roman Empire and that is part of an interesting tour of the Roman archeology of Mediolanum.

  • Interesting interior.
  • After fifty years and a major restoration, the crypt of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre has reopened to the public on March 12, 2016. Rebuilt after the first crusade, was studied by Leonardo da Vinci: san Carlo made it a place of prayer on the mystery of Christ's passion, while his cousin Federico Borromeo built around the Biblioteca Ambrosiana. The crypt is one of the oldest places of the city and is located on the ancient Roman Cardo and Decumanus crossing: the flooring, consisting of large slabs of white stone very resistant, called ' Verona ', comes from the ancient Roman paving of the 4th century that represented the main square of the civitas romana, where the main civil and religious activities were held. The genesis of the Church and the crypt below, however, is of 1030, when Benedict Ronzone, child of Remedio (master of the Mint), founded here a private chapel, dedicated to the Holy Trinity. When he returned from the first crusade that had attended too many Milanese, the great-grandson of the first founder had it rebuilt the Church to "imitation" of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, just freed from the hands of the infidels. The new temple, with the rededication, he was consecrated by Archbishop 15 July 1100 solemnly Anselmo da Bovisio, such monumental votive offerings for the enterprise accomplished and as a sign of perennial bond between the Holy City reported to Christianity and the milanese community itself. With an indulgence granted to all who have visited this shrine, unable to travel to the Holy land. At the center of an underground area is a large sarcophagus of the tomb of Christ, by a campionese master in the first 300. According to tradition it was placed inside the land taken by the Crusaders in Jerusalem, along with other relics from the Holy places overseas. In front of the sarcophagus is a seventeenth-century polychrome statue of Saint Carlo. The Borromeo, moreover, wished to settle in this complex, the Congregation of the Oblates who favored in particular devotions in memory of the passion of Christ, establishing also the procession with the Holy nail, on the feast of the finding of the cross.

  • Very interesting history tied to the ups and downs of the Crusades. Houses a sarcophagus containing the Holy Land carried by Knights Templar.

  • The Church of St Sepulchre stands on two levels-one underground and one outside-in the square in Milan, not far from piazza Duomo and on the site of what was once the Roman Forum in Milan

  • The Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which physically lies in the Centre of Milan, opened after 50 years the crypt restored only partially. To visit what I recommend enquire about opening times.
