The Basilica of Sant Eustorgio is a catholic church in Milan, an architectural monument. The Romanesque church was built in the XI-XII centuries (later heavily rebuilt), in the XIV-XV centuries numerous Renaissance chapels were added to the basilica. For centuries, the basilica was a place of pilgrimage to the relics kept here, which were believed to belong to the three kings who brought gifts to the newborn Jesus. In 1764, a Christian burial was discovered under the basilica, containing coins of the emperor Constant (reigned 337-350), the son of Constantine the Great. In the 13th century, the Basilica became the main temple of the Milan Dominicans, the first brothers were sent here in 1219 by St. Dominic himself. In 1227, Sant Eustorgio was officially transferred to the Order of Preachers. The Dominicans did a great job of rebuilding and expanding the church.
