  • This small church, a short walk from the Rome sports field track. The air was a solemn atmosphere, but the appearance of the building is particularly eye-catching glitz. Staff feel the shine was not allowed in, surrounded by houses around has been alive in history.

  • Impressive is the location of this temple and the bastion where, according to tradition. St. Agatha, patroness of the city, was imprisoned, was tortured and died in the 3rd century. The mole of the bastion belongs really to the fortifications completed in the 16th century on the ancient Greek walls of the 6th century BCE. The window opens in the bastion to which, according to tradition, used to look out the santa. The current church dates from the 18th century, when the temple was rebuilt after suffering the effects of the catastrophic earthquake that devastated the city in 1693. Unfortunately I could not visit the interior, although outwardly the monument seems very interesting both from the artistic point of view as historical.

  • The Church is beautiful, but we would not have appreciated fully the treasures and we would not have known his story had we not opted for the guided tour: thanks Luke!
