One of Milan's most ancient churches, Basilica di S. Ambrogio was built by St Ambrose in the late 4th century, and restored & partially reconstructed several times over the centuries reaching its current state in the 12th century. The courtyard holds much of interest, most notably the Celtic decoration of columns, and carved bronze doors. The interior is dominated by a massive mosaic from the early 12th century, reminiscent of earlier mosaics found in Ravenna.
