This church is an important testimony to the role played by Milan in Roman and Christian times. It is preceded by 16 Romanesque Romanesque columns from a temple of the th century B.C., columns beyond which one accesses the where the statue of Emperor Constantine rises. Although several times rebuilt and reconstructed, the church has preserved its original structure of the th century. However, it is the product of a superposition of christian, Romanesque, Renaissance and Baroque elements. Its façade is from the th century and its imposing dome (the largest of Milan) from the beginning of the th century. Inside, it retained several elements of the primitive basilica: The chapel di Sant'Aquilino (th century). , decorated with beautiful mosaics of Byzantine inspiration, vestiges of paléochrétiennes frescoes, and chapels in San Ippolito and San Sisto.
