Basilica of San Calimero

Local nameBasilica di San Calimero
LocationVigentina, Milan, Italy

The Basilica di San Calimero is a church in Milan, northern Italy. Its name refers to Saint Calimerius, an early bishop of the city. It dates from the 5th century but was almost completely rebuilt in 1882 by the architect Angelo Colla in an attempt to restore it to the "original" medieval structure.

What remains of the ancient church include: the 16th century crypt, with a noble frescoed vault by the Fiammenghini; a small fresco with the Madonna and Two Female Saints in the apse; a Crucifixion by Il Cerano, and a noteworthy Nativity by Marco d'Oggiono. Other medieval frescoes are in the annexed sacristy.
