Romanic style chapel of the middle age sited beyond the Santa Maria Maggiore cathedral, with characteristic stone walls, vault, and modern paintings inside

Very old (12C) temple tucked away behind Santa Maria Maggiore but worth a quick visit. Can't go inside, unfortunately, at least it was closed when I was there

The temple is a very small building, yet it's definitely worth seeing. It might not seem like something spectacular, especially in comparison with other churches but it has a very long history.

This was built in 1133 and became what is known as the Bishops Chapel in 1169. It is remarkable how well the old building has been maintained. Access to inside the building was not available but those adjacent were visited.

Circle around the streets and you will find this gem tucked in between some other buildings. Look for the signs and walk up and around this beautiful old church.

Interesting monument or temple, when I was there, the entrance was closed due to repairs, still is a very interesting example of very early Christian temples.

This tiny round church is easily overlooked but it dates from the 11th century and is built on Roman foundations. When I visited it was not open to the public but the outside was interesting. You can find it by walking up the steps to...More
