Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio15
Why locals love it
Dedicated to the patron saint of Milan, Sant'Ambrogio is one of the oldest churches in the city and one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy. Its historical significance is second only to the Duomo cathedral. Exhibitions and other events occasionally take place in the atrium.
Why you should visit it
Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio is perfectly preserved thanks to numerous restorations. The façade and interior arches are spectacular, and the golden mosaic that adorns the dome is simply sublime!
