Every inch of Rome seems to lie on top of layers and layers of the past and this church is no exception. St Cecilia was martyred here in the 3rd century and a church built to honor her in the 4th. Under the church, rebuilt in the 9th century, lie the crypt with incredibly beautiful mosaics which is reached by wandering through the remains of her house and a tannery. Unlike many other sites in Rome, we shared this incredible journey into the past with one other couple!
