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.

Make sure to explore this wonderful church. It holds a much more vibrant history and atmosphere than the rather 'empty' Duomo.

So bright and peaceful. The more you look, the more you see - an unbelievable pulpit for example. Not to be missed.

this the best place in milano, where you may find suggestions from the last period of roman history when many structures where devoted to Christ. Walking inside and around it you'll find inspirations and breathe the glorious past.
