  • To get the best impression of these ruienene, and have seen how big the church really was so I recommend that they also be seen from the Palatine Hill. This was the last of the major civil Basilica on the Roman Forum. The ruins are located between the temple and Temple and Roma Amor of Romulus, on the Via Sacra. The construction of the Church was scheduled by Maxentius in 308 and finished in 312.

  • A truly massive ruin. It's especially impressive when you consider that only a portion it remains standing; the rest has been lost to time. For safety reasons you can't walk beneath the high arched ceiling, but when standing just a few meters away you'll certainly be able to appreciate the structure's grandeur.
