Very nice place. The history and architecture is well preserved so props to the Italian officials for that. It's a nice spot to take some photos, and understand some more about Italian History. I would like to go and see it again if I am every in the area some time in the future, and would recommend families, couples and singles to visit and take some good photos!
Extremely interesting to visit an early Christian church built in austere Roman style. Comparing with the later building lofty standards this church may appear modest still I think it's closer to the ideas of biblical simplicity. It's the only church visited so far wherein I could see a melange of old pagan, aryan symbols like swastika mingled with Christian symbolism hence suggesting the transition to later stage. Must visit. Please read of St Ambrose and St Augustine before visiting.
Really cool church. The inspiration for UCLA’s original buildings.
One of the best Churches all over North of Italy. The real heart of the city..history, atmosphere, mystic surround..
Very nice. Since it's a functional church, the entrance is free but there is a lunch time. The oldest part is in the rear, entrance is 2€.
