Description

This Basilica is of prime importance to Milan because it was founded by- and then dedicated to- Ambrose, the Ancient Roman-born citizen who was elected bishop of the city by popular acclaim, in 374 A.D. Today, the church is basically Romanesque, dating back to the 11th-12th century. To the left and right side of the façade there are two bell-towers, not symmetrical, but reflecting the fact that in the 8th century, the Benedictine monks of the church were joined by a group of priests. The altar, a 9th century masterpiece in gold and precious stones, is a must-see.
