From this year, MilanoCard includes within its offer 2 of the main attractions of the city: the Crypt of Leonardo and Highline Galleria.
The Crypt of Leonardo, located in the place that Leonardo da Vinci defined the “real center” of the Milan, is situated in Piazza San Sepolcro behind the Palace of Ambrosiana. Founded on 6th December 1020 by Benedetto Rozone, descendants of the magistri monetae of the imperial mint, with the name of Santissima Trinità. On 15th July 1100, during the Crusades, the archbishop Anselmo da Bovisio dedicates the church to San Sepolcro of Gerusalemme. The Crypt was built on the ancient roman forum of the city. It was the ancient main square of the town center of Mediolanum since the founding of the Roman city in the Republican age.
