Church Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio in Milan

A beautiful red brick church named after the city's patron saint

Founded in AD 386 by the bishop Ambrose, Milan's patron saint, the Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio is the oldest church in the city and one of the most important examples of Lombardy Romanesque architecture. When visiting, pay attention to the beautiful Anspert's atrium, with pillars featuring biblical scenes and mythical beasts narrating the struggle between Good and Evil.
