Basilica Sant'Ambrogio, Milan: 30 reviews and 100 photos
Built in a typical Lombard medieval style in 379 and consecrated by St. Ambrose in 386, Sant'Ambrogio is one of the oldest churches in Milan.
During the years, different parts of the complex have been added: in 739 the monastery of the Benedictine Monks, in the 9th century the simple right bell-tower, in the 10th century the apse and the presbytery and in the 12th century the aisles, the drum, the entrance and the left bell-tower, known as bell-tower of the canons.
The last part completed was the three-arched loggia finished in 1889.
The facade is flanked on either side by the two bell-towers and is composed of two super-imposed loggias.
