Known for its mosaics, this 9th century church is dedicated to Saint Praxedes, an early Christian heroin who hid the Christians in a well trying to escape the hounding and respectfully buried who couldn’t survive.
The position of the historic well is marked by a marble disk on the floor of the nave. The mosaics are attributed to several artists ushered in by Pope Paschal I from Byzantium. The frescoes rightfully bear the hallmark of their eastern creators in bold gold marked with Christian symbolism.
The Fresco of Paschal whose head is shadowed by a blue nimbus, the Cappella di San Zenone which includes the piece of column to which Christ was tied to in Jersualem is worth observing.
