Burial Place of the Three Magi

Founded in the 4th century, Basilica di Sant’Eustorgio served as an important landmark for pilgrims on their journey to Rome, as it reputedly housed the remains of the Three Magi. Beginning in the 13th century, the church was the main seat of the Dominican Order in Milan, of which some traces can be seen today in the museum next door. With a complex architectural structure, there are many little chapels to check out, as well as a museum for a small fee. Be on the lookout for the little star on top of the bell tower, symbolizing the star that guided the Three Magi. Avoid coming during mass times if you want to take your time exploring the church.
