    Description :

    “The origin of this famous Milanese Church can be traced back to the end of the fourth century, when, with the object of honouring the memory of the numerous Christian martyrs buried in Philip Oldano’s gardens outside the Vercellina Gate, the Bishop Ambroso erected near the Fausta Church a new temple, into which he transferred the bodies of the Martyrs, the Saints Gervaso and Protaso, and expressed the desire that at his death his body also should be interred near them.”
