  • Located behind the Arch of Janus, this beautiful church has endured, and partially embedded at its left side the Arcus argentariorum, erected in 204 a.d. in honour of Septimius Severus, his wife and his sons Caracalla and Julia Domna Geta.Il moniker "Velabro" refers to the area between the Palatine and the cattle market, which once occupied by a swamp , was reclaimed by the construction of the Cloaca Maxima running through it all before emptying into the Tevere.La Church dates from perhaps the 6th century, but was rebuilt under Leo II in 682 and underwent several restorations; the Romanesque Bell Tower was added in the 13th century four storey of trefoils and the porch with four columns with Ionic capitals, in which we read the false inscription on the work, because the inscription was added in the 16th century. In the middle ages the Church was venerated because of Saint George; Here Cola di Rienzo presided over the religious functions as a representative of the municipality and for the employment of the municipality in 1347 explained to wind the flag which depicts Saint George Slaying the Dragon. Beneath the high altar preserves the precious relic of half of the head of St. George. Inside valuable is the "Madonna enthroned with Saints" attributed to Cavallini, while some guides tend to lean toward his students. In July 1993 a terrorist attack destroyed the porch and the eardrum and damaged the steeple that were immediately rebuilt.

  • The temple is dedicated to St. George-Roman soldier, who martyred under Diocletian. The relics of the Holy-in the main altar. In the Central apse is one of the oldest frescoes in Rome depicting Christ with Saints George, Mary, Peter and Sebastian, originally ascribed to Giotto already. But lately the author recognized by Pietro Cavallini.

  • We stumbled upon this church by chance when we were just exploring the area the first day we spend in Rome. The inside of the church looks simpler than the more popular tourist sites, but you can just see the authenticity of the architecture and and Roman basilica style. In some ways it was actually more interesting
  • Possibly the loveliest church in Rome (and I've seen them all). Not hit by Baroque restructuring, it has retained its original athmosphere. The mixed set of re-used classical columns, the portico in front, re-used roman sculpture in the walls and the attached equally antique arco degli argentari make this a must-see. In a very lovely and quiet street, behind the Arco di Giano. Much to be prefered to the nearby worn-out boca della verita'.
  • Church from the 9th century, built over an existing oldest, was the subject in 1993, together with Saint John Lateran, a bomb attack, presumably under attack the State put in place by the "Cosa Nostra" mafia with the massacres.
