Basilica Di Santa Prassede, Rome
Categories: Ruins, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Commissioned by Pope Hadrian in the eighth century, Basilica Di Santa Prassede in the heart of Rome is a detailed example of early Christian religious architecture. Admire the basilica's Carolingian-era frescoes and carvings, representative of the ongoing artistic renaissance during its construction. Marvel at the large, marble columns lining the apse as you examine religious artifacts from centuries past, including the tombs of several important figures. Note the detail put into the church's massive, intricate mosaic in the main room. You'll see depictions of biblical events and the life of its namesake, St. Praxedes. For a small fee, you can try out the chapel's decorative lighting system.

Una chiesa seminascosta, non lontano da Santa Maria Maggiore, quasi invisibile, in un piccolo vicolo. Eppure uno scrigno di bellezza.

この教会は、大きく有名な教会というわけではありませんが、モザイクが素晴らしく美しく、ローマにいくたびに、絶対に立ち寄ります。テルミニ駅からも近く、すこぶるおすすめです。モザイクに限らず、教会内部も、青色が基調としてすっきりとセンスよく、大好きです。Whenever the Church is not necessarily large and well-known Church, mosaic will Rome nice and beautiful and never stop. Close to Termini station and it is very much recommended. Not limited to Mosaic church interior also blue as clear and common sense, love.show original
Big disappointment. If you put in a euro for the lights to shine, nothing happens. Then if you try to encourage the machine by tapping on it, an angry man appears saying that sunlight is good enough. Mosaics are not bad but the whole atmosphere is. If you want to see really good mosaics, go to the Santa Maria in Trastevere. Or just go to Ravenna.

This is truly a hidden gem in Rome. It isn't as popular as other places but offers one of the best design and sculptures we've seen around Rome. Do add this to your to-see list when sightseeing Rome, totally worth.
Lovely Church from the 8 th century....has a most interesting relic, the Pillar of the Flogging of Christ.....
Cool to visit, esp. to see the pillar of the flagellation of Christ.
A nice local church in Roma. Just a couple of minutes from Santa Maria Maggiore. Prevail Peaceful!
