  • In the heart of #trastevere, the most characteristic of the neighborhoods of #roma, this #basilica is located in the precise place where, according to tradition, oil gushed out of the ground! Upon entering you first note the splendid mosaic that adorns the top of the façade, while once it is read with astonishment admiring the aisles with architraves and, especially, the superb richly decorated coffered wooden ceiling. Worth a splurge with particular attention also to the altar with canopy and the statues of various popes buried here! Not to be missed! @gargio76

  • But Rome seems to be one of the oldest churches. End of renovation, the front façade. Worth to visit a nice mosaic.
