  • The Basilica di San Lorenzo fuori-le-Mura (i.e. St. Lawrence outside the walls) includes seven major Roman churches for pilgrims. It is located near the Verano cemetery. Metro nearby, so you'll have to go far. I was 1.5 km along Tiburtinskoj road. All signs of antiquity are present in the temple: the portico façade and Romanesque Bell Tower, two marble Lions at the entrance, floors, Chair and throne in cosmatesque style; in the temple are the relics of Saint Lorenzo. The impression from the very deep.

  • For the ancient Roman Highway via Tiburtina to the Church of San Lorenzo "behind the walls" we walked for quite a long time, it is absolutely not a tourist trail. The Church is ancient, extant since the 6th century. The façade wall inside the portico is covered with old murals: it's amazing how manages to save them. Inside the temple is preserved ancient harsh atmosphere, as if breathes history. In the room were exhibited pictures of 1946 onwards: the Church was severely damaged during the second world war. Creepy images. Now all restored.

  • The Basilica of Saint Lawrence outside the walls is one of the main churches of Rome, located next to the main entrance of the Verano cemetery. Located just outside the old city walls; Once considered in the outskirts. With the urban expansion of the city, however, its location is considered virtually Central. Was almost entirely rebuilt (with the same original materials) after the Allied bombardment of World War II. What can we say? Beautiful, historic, majestic. At the entrance to the left is the tomb of De Gasperi, with a sculpture built by Giacomo Manzù. Down to the Central crypt there are the tombs of Lorenzo martyr and Pope Pius IX. Beautiful the ciborium. From the sacristy leads to characteristic cloister. You can visit the homonymous catacombs (charges apply). San Lorenzo is not holy door, but, given its importance, has obtained full Jubilee indulgence. To see.

  • A very historical basilica but need restoration especially the tomb of st laurence
  • Not as ornate as other churches in Rome, but had an interesting history and isn't crowded
  • Beautiful church rebuilt after the second world war, beautiful mosaic of Christ.

  • Although the Church has been restored because of the bombing of the second world war is still one of the best examples of Romanesque architecture in Rome
