Milan was founded in 400 b.C. by Celts, its name belongs to the word "Mediolanum", which means "midland" (the origin of the term is celtic, but also the Latins adopted it), indicating a particular geographical position, which made the city very appealing for many populations of the ancient Europe: the Celts, the Romans, the Longobards, the French, the Spanish and the Austrians.
That's why Milan is a city so rich in culture and shows different styles of art (Classic, Romanesque, Gothic, Neoclassic, Liberty...).
Emblematic is the Dome, considered the most beautiful Gothic Cathedral in the world, as also all the great many Romanesque churches.
Among these: S.Ambrogio, with the spectacular golden altar; S.Maria delle Grazie, with the immortal "Last Supper" painted by Leonardo on the Refectory wall; S.Eustorgio, with the sanctuary dedicated to mythical relics of the Three Magi Kings.
