Another of the four churches built by St. Ambrose in Milan in 382. The church is famous for having the relics of the Apostles under its altar. It was originally the Apostles, then rededicated when the body of St. Nazarus was discovered. See the grey walls of the paleo-Christian masonry under the new white plaster. Check the Trivulzio Chapel, the chapel of Santa Caterina, the small archaeological site to the right of the presbytery, and the inscription written by Ambrose explaining the church's plan. The highlight of the church are the 13th-15th century frescoes, a magnificent series of artwork.

Basilica Di S. Nazaro Maggiore, Milan Reviews - Write a Review

  • Excellent basilica where you are going to find Mausoleum of Trvulzio Family. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.

  • Beautiful, quite historic church. Much less crowded than the duomo, but possibly richer in history. This is on the Milan Historic Society's self-guided walking tour. Be aware: opening hours are not extensive.

  • It is worth the wait in the long lines for ticket and then to get into or rather around the Cathedral to the roof. A beautiful view of Milano. It is a must if you are in Milano for a few days.

  • Great little place away from most tourist activities.

  • Precious church that was founded by Ambrose and still preserves Paleochristian (the dome plus some inscriptions), Romanic (the main body) and Renaissance (the so-called Cappella Trivulzio at the entrance) construction phases. From the right arm, entrance to some Roman kilns. In the same arm, tomb of a doctor at the Roman imperial court with inscribed epigrams in Greek and Latin.
