The crypt of San Giovanni in Conca is a monument located in Missori square in Milan.

It is what remains of the early Christian basilica of San Giovanni in Conca, of which few traces remain dating from the eleventh century: a part of the apse and the entire crypt.

The first original early Christian church was built between the fifth and sixth centuries. A new one was built in place of it, in the eleventh century (the crypt remained today was part of the second church) and again another, after the destruction of the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa in 1162, in the thirteenth century.

The church was deconsecrated in the late 1700s and underwent a progressive decline until, shortly after the end of World War II, it was demolished to because of the need to create e new road.

Fortunately the façade was saved and transferred to the new Waldensian church in Via Francesco Sforza. On site there are only the crypt and the apse.

Currently the crypt is an exhibition space and in it even older remains of the Roman times were discovered and are now visible.
