The Basilica (cathedral) of S. Eustorgio is a very ancient church inside the old town. It rises on the ruins of a very small church dating back to the IV century , founded on Saint Eustorgio' s tomb. Eustorgio was one of the very first bishops in Milan. According to a very old legend, Eustorgio brought there the relics of... More

This Romanesque church is as pretty as any ancient Basilica in town, plus it shelters the ark where, tradition says, the Magi were buried until their bodies were transferred to Cologne in the 12th century. It's a bit of a shame that such an important artifact has been placed in a hidden corner once the chapel that used to contain... More

A very nice and well conserved old old church ... is worth the visit, specially if you're lucky to get shown around by a volunteer guide who is sometimes at the Church ...

This one is not generally in the guide books, but it is worth an hour or two to see and understand. Probably from the 4th century. Eustorgius I was the bishop of Milan who was involved with moving supposed relics of the Magi to Milan from Constantinople in 344. In the 1700's when an ancient pillar was removed there was... More

This church in south centre of Milan has a lot to see. It really is a treasure trove of ancient relics. Of note is the Portinari chapel with the elaborate tomb of Saint Peter the martyr and in the main church, the immense ancient tomb of the biblical three Magi ( wise men) although the tomb was ransacked in the...

Although the Basilica is old and rather lovely, the jewel in the crown of this attraction is the fifteenth century Capella Portinari, added to the church expressly to contain the relics of St Peter Martyr in a huge and intricately carved three-deck marble sarcophagus that depicts eight episodes in his turbulent life. As a medieval figure, Peter Martyr is easy... More

A quiet church, we were the only tourists visiting this day. The church contains Balduccio's marble tomb and the beautiful Capella Portinari. I was disappointed to see the pews had been replaced with nasty plastic chairs.

Fascinating church that dates back to the fourth century with perhaps roman remains under the crypt. It definitely exudes an ancient atmosphere even though most is now a 16th Century rebuilding of the 11th Century church. However, the main reason for visiting is the Portinari Chapel with its rainbow-coloured scales on the large dome and the Balduccio sarcophagus of St... More

A simple, yet very elegant and richly decorated, well lit church, with a long history and separate museum dedicated to the Re Maggi who brought the gifts to the newborn Jesus from afar. For those studying the history of Saint Ambrogio and his influence on Milan, a must see visit in the lovely Piazza Sant'Eustorgio in the heart of the... More
