Originally built as a mausoleum in the fourth century for Costanza, son of Constantine, this church was transformed into a baptistery and then into a church towards the middle of the second century.

Well it's nice there. Impressive sarcophagus. That said it would be nice if the place have had written information in English. If it was there we didn't find it.
