Founded in the 4th century, rebuilt sometime later in Romanesque style, this church was a highly important pilgrimage stop as it was suspected to contain the relics of the Three Magi. These were reportedly removed to Cologne in the 12th century, and only recently have fragments of the relics been returned. Coins of the son of Contantine the Great were found in an excavation at the church. Check out the 14th and 15th century chapels, and the high altar from the 15th century. There are some beautiful Renaissance frescoes in the Portinari Chapel, which also contains tomb of Saint Peter of Verona, one of the finest tombs in the country.. Apparently the church used to be headquarters of Milan's Inquisition.

Excellent monument of medieval architecture. Here you are going to find the mausoleum of Three Magi and shall be able to venerate parts of their relics. In Portinari Chapel you are going to find the sepulchre of Saint Peter the Martyr
Wandered in here during Sunday mass. Beautiful basilica with wonderful people, well worth a visit. Chapel is with paid entry.
It is okay but I found it to be more beautiful from the outside.
We passed this beautiful quiet church a few times prior to visiting and was always intrigued by it. The outside is actually more beautiful than the inside. About 3 euros for entry i think and that will get you in the church and museum. Certainly a must visit.
Very nice church with relicts of the Magi. And it is definitely worth paying a small admission for a the Portinari chapel with a tomb of Saint Peter Martyr. You'll also get to the catacombs!
