Description Built mainly of brick, the basilica of Sant' Eustorgio, Corso di Porta Ticinese, was consecrated in 515 by bishop Eustorgio II. After being destroyed in 1164, the nave was rebuilt in the gothic style in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries with later additions in the fifteenth and sixteenth. The façade was rebuilt in the nineteenth century. The ornamentation in the spandrels of this interior bay, and in the frieze above the arches, which Mackintosh noted with such care, has since been removed. The drawing shows: plan of vaulting (top left); elevation of bay (centre); detail of frieze above arch (top right); impost (top centre left); unidentified moulding (bottom centre left); plan of nave pier (bottom left); detail of ornamentation in spandrel (bottom right).
