This church was built over another church and you can go down into the church underground. Many churches in Rome were built over earlier churches or pagan churches (San Clemente was built over 2 previous churches).

Another church I had gone by so many times. Went by yesterday and it was open, so I went in. I was surprised by how the interior is so much more beautiful than the exterior, with Cosmatesque marble floors and a beautiful ceiling. We also...More

This current church was founded in the 500s. It contains stonework and mosaics that merit a visit. Before 499 this was the site of a church, which together with S.Maria in Trastevere and S.Cecilia, were the original Christian churches in Trastevere. Regular floods raised the...More

The Church of San Crisogono resembles a layered cake: three in one. It is one of the oldest Roman churches. The first Church was built on ancient ruins in 499 under Pope Sylvester I. and dedicated to the martyr Saint Chrysogonus. This can be seen:...More

We passed by San Crisogono on our way back from our visit to Santa Maria Trastevere. My first thought when entering the basilica is that it was very similar in look and layout as Santa Maria Trastevere that we had just visited a half our...More

The interior is nice, but don’t miss the excavations. Go up the left aisle to the end and turn left into a room where an attendant collects the fee and shows you how to go downstairs. They have a small multilingual pamphlet explaining the excavations.
