THE AMBROSIANA AND THE CRYPT OF SAN SEPOLCRO: THE REAL CENTRE OF MILAN

GUIDED TOUR FOR PARISH GROUPS

Piazza San Sepolcro is a small miniature Milan: it contains the ancient access to the Ambrosiana Library founded in 1609, the Church of San Sepolcro, dating to 1034 AD, the fifteenth-century Palazzo Castani and the imposing Littoria Tower of the twentieth century.
The tour winds through the rooms of the famous Pinacoteca founded in 1618 by Federico Borromeo, the first museum open to the public in Milan, allowing us to admire his most famous masterpieces, from Leonardo to Raffaello to Caravaggio and ends with the descent into the crypt of the Holy Sepulcher, built on the stones of the ancient forum of Mediolanum. A real journey through time, which takes place going down into the subsoil of Milan, to see the most ancient layers of the city of Milan: even Leonardo da Vinci knew that this was the real center of Milan!
