The Basilica of Sant Eufemia is a very old church, since it was founded by the Archbishop San Senator Settala (whose remains are preserved in the church) in the years 472-475. It was however was rebuilt in the Romanesque period and remodeled several times. The current building, and in particular its interiors, are the result of extensive restoration architect by Enrico Terzaghi in 1870.

In this church was baptized in 1564 Federico Borromeo, nephew of St. Charles and future archbishop of Milan.

The interior of the church is in neo-Gothic style, is composed of three distinct sections: the avant-corps of the nineteenth century, the nave and the apse. Both the walls and the vaults are richly decorated with polychrome frescoes.

The building externally in neo-Romanesque architecture, has a lofty front, preceded by a small portico with three round arches on marble columns, the interior walls and the vault. The latter two present a rich mosaic decoration that is reminiscent of the mausoleum of Galla Placidia in Ravenna.
