"Splendid Roman Church"

The Basilica of St. Ambrose was originally built in 379 CE at the burial site of those lost in the Roman persecution. Restored, reconstructed and redesigned several times over the years, the basilica as it stands today features a Romanesque design of unusual proportions, and is revered as a stellar example of Medieval architecture. The interior is made up of a long body with three aisles that open on to secondary spaces and intriguing chapels that date back to the Sforza dynasty. Around every corner lie impressive architectural details and artistic embellishments like gilded statues, rich carvings, and other ecclesiastical art. Of special note are the ciborium, the gold altar, and paleo-Christian mosaics. Here lie the mortal remains of St. Ambrose himself, alongside those of St. Gervasius and St.Protasius, which can be viewed in the crypt.
