Thank you Timothy for the comments, always very welcome!

This is a little church some 100 meters away from the Sant'Ambrogio basilica, it is said to have been built by Richini, a big name of Baroque era in Lombardy...but then it was deruled from the Richini's works and suffered since then a little bit of "decadence" in terms of appeal...anyway it is said that Saint Ambrose was baptised here, and I find it very...white and full of light, very elegant...so here you are the little Sant'Agostino church:

Other images from San Vincenzo al Prato basilica, this very old temple deserves it because is linked with many legends...this basilica is said to have been raised upon a roman temple (a round temple, a "tholos") dedicated to jupiter, and the temple is said to have been build above a "nemeton", a celtic sacred forest. The sacred place, a round forest, from our historical sources (Carlo Torre) it is known to be called "Rotonda degli olmi", or "round of elms". According to XIX century studies, above the actual basilica there should be still a "cromlech", or a sacred burial from the pre gaul culture of Golasecca, a culture contemporary to the Hallstatt one, some thousand years b.C.
Milan is in fact said to have been chosen not for its position or for its rivers or hill, since Milan has not big rivers or considerable hills, but because it represented a sort of "vatican" for the pre gaul people of the region, for its springs of waters and its sacred forests. In this little basilica we find so many different layers of history, for example in the crypt we can find capitols and columns reused from the round roman ancien temple:



Panoramic of the beautiful crypt:



Or another roman column inside of the basilica itself:



Outside you can find other roman elements, look at the celtic style of the ornaments, so different from the imperial era roman capital, full of classic elements:





The baptistry is modern, from 1930s (Paolo Mezzanotte architect), but inside you can find as confessional the so called "pietrasanta":



it is said to be a roman pillar, and it is called "santa" because saint ambrose would have prayed on it...
This site should be investigated much more archeologically, because here we can find maybe much more informations about our city's origin

Exterior of Paolo Mezzanotte's baptistry:



and interior:

Thank you, thank you all for all the comments!

I'm gonna post a previosly unpublished church, this one is called San Bernardino alle Monache and it is near to the Basilica di Sant'Ambrogio monumental complex.
This church has been built in 1450 and it is a late gothic example of Pietro Antonio Solari. Inside you'll find nice XV century frescoes from maybe Bernardino Zenale or Vincenzo Foppa.







the interiors with the frescoes, sorry for the blurry images...





All images are mine.
