  • The crypt of San Giovanni in Conca (piazza Missori) are the remains of the ancient Christian basilica of San Giovanni in Conca which was the seat of the Waldensian Evangelical Church of Milan. Practically demolished in 1949 to beautify the city

  • Consulting with a pamphlet that listed sites Touring Club Milan opened thanks to the work of their volunteers, I finally figured out what were those ruins that can be seen in Piazza Missori. These are the remains of the basilica of San Giovanni in Conca which, after centuries of shifting fortunes, was finally demolished after the war to open new and more modern streets in downtown Milan. The crypt, at least one was recovered very well, but is very small and should be visited more than anything to know the events and out of curiosity to see what treasures were sacrificed in the name of modernity.

  • I love this little, lesser known site! We stumbled upon it one day, and have never seen it busy. But it's so full of history, and I find it fascinating! Small, interesting, great stop close to the duomo.
  • The volunteer guide is very helpful and told a fascinating story!
  • Nice little historical structure. Good for a photo portrait, not far out of the way from nearby landmarks.
  • Definitely worth a trip the cript! Full of history. Tricky opening hours. Make appointment ahead.
  • Lovely ruins.
