Before there was a church here there was a 3rd century Paleo-Christian cemetery, the final resting places of the Martyrs Sisinio, Martirio and Alessandro. St. Ambrose built one of his four churches on this location, making it one of the oldest churches in the city. The church became famous in the 11th century, when the martyrs buried here supposedly gave their forms to doves, landing on the city's Carroccio, (a ceremonial war waggon), as a symbol of courage to the Lombard League against their battle with Frederick Barbarossa. The current Romanesque look was created during the 12th and 13th centuries. See the mullioned windows. The side chapels contain art from various periods - Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, and Neoclassical. The stained glass windows depict the battle of Legnano.

Basilica Of San Simpliciano, Milan Reviews - Write a Review
Very beautiful church. Although majority of original interiors were missing. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
It's a nice church but don't get out of your way to visit it. If you're in Sempione park, go visit it.
Just beyond beautiful!
One of the most interesting churches I've ever been to.
