  • Also dating to the 6th century like the neighboring Basilica, it has an empty yet beautiful interior with roman columns and floor mosaic.

  • We have to go inside this church, because its walls ware so inviting... we love history, esp. Italian.

  • Breathtaking small and very old church
  • Fifth century church, characterized by geometric mosaics, the most important motif and which appears several times is the Solomon's Knot, it is a very important symbol for Christians because it indicates the indivisibility between earthly life and spiritual life. There are also peacocks which symbolize eternity and peace. Very sober but interesting church.
