The Basilica of Sant’Ambrogio is one of the most historic basilicas in Milan. Built under St. Ambrose (the patron saint of Milan) between 379-386 A.D., the church is a wonderful example of Romanesque style. Composed primarily of brickwork, the Basilica has been through multiple restorations.
Today, the Basilica of Saint Ambrose’s crypt is home to final resting place of the patron saint which is located in an area where numerous martyrs from roman times have also been buried called the “Tesoro di Sant’Ambrogio”. It is a rich prestigious exhibit of goldsmith artefacts and other objects of high artistic and religious value dated from 13th to 19th century.
