The Basilica of San Simpliciano is the second oldest church in Milan in the form of a Latin cross, first erected by Saint Ambrose. It is dedicated to Saint Simplician, bishop of Milan. The site of the present church was occupied in the 3rd century AD by a pagan cemetery. Here St. Ambrose began the construction of the Basilica Virginum (“Basilica of the Virgins”), which was finished by his successor Simplicianus, who was buried here. The square is one of the most beautiful place in the heart of the Brera Disctrict famous for his narrow streets, artistis atelier and bohemian atmosphere.
