  • Dating back to the 3rd century and took its name from the sister of Constantine I, Anastasia. Located right at the foot of the Palatine practically at the junction of two ancient Roman roads: because of its strategic location in terms of road conditions at the time-the Pope as the Bishop of Rome, celebrated the mass at dawn just on Christmas day which is exactly on the day of the martyrdom of the Saint. The present basilica retains very little of its antique look because it has undergone several restorations. The appearance and current setting, as well as the prospect of mold by Bernini, ought to Pope Urban VIII Barberini and survived despite two other successive restorations. The Interior has three naves divided by antique columns, is very bright and its architectural lines are distinguished by grace and elegance. The works here are preserved to remember John the Baptist in the wilderness by Pier Francesco Mola, Saint Turibius of Francesco Trevisani and some paintings by Lazzaro Baldi. Under the Church and beside, there are archaeological structures belonging to different periods, including a large monumental frontispiece, large tabernae and part of an insula. To remember that nearby existed/exists the Lupercal where investigations are nearing completion. This place of worship was the first practicing Perpetual Eucharistic adoration that began in 2001, through the work of the current Rector Don Alberto Pacini, has never stopped as the Church that is always open.

  • Built on the remains of a colossal building of the first century, by some scholars identified with the vestibule of lupercal (where Romulus and Remus were nursed by the she-Wolf), is dedicated to Anastasia, close relative of Constantine, martyred under Diocletian in Illyria (whence came the same Constantine). Under pope Damasus (early decades of 300) was already a place of worship of the Imperial Court. Retains the Basilica and highlights the achievements within from different times of restoration that occurred over the centuries. Classical in form, not very big, but for its location is popular for wedding ceremonies.

  • The Basilica of Santa Anastasia on the Palatine is located so that it is not likely to notice when moving to Circo Massimo in the direction of the River, the temple is hidden behind a stone wall. Façade opens onto the street of San Teodoro. Frankly, mass in Rome preserved older churches with much more important things inside.
