  • The church of St. George is located behind the Arch of Janus, not far from the Tiber. The rather simple interior uses columns taken from ancient temples. A very peaceful church to visit. The ancient A...  more »
  • Only a few hundred steps from the tourist crowds, attracted by the opportunity like heroines Audrey Hepburn, try your luck, having a hand in the mouth of truth at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin (purely tourist attraction-the role of the mouth of truth acts Luke sewerage Cloaca Massimo) is a place bearing the seal of the history of Rome and the amazing way associated with Russia. Visible with the Tiber embankment Arch of Janus hides behind itself the Church of San Giorgio Velabro Ying (Church of St. George in the swamp). This place is legendary here handed down the Tiber cart with infants Romulus and Ram and it is here that the babies found foster their she-Wolf. The Church is adjacent to the arch argentariev, erected in honour of Emperor Septimius Severus and his family. After the assassination of his brother Karakalloj Geto, lick on basreliefs of the arch was destroyed. The Church San Giorgio Velabro ying, since ancient times has been repeatedly reconstructed, as evidenced by the Interior of the Church. Under the Church are Roman catacombs to visit that can be in agreement with church officials. In the altar of the Church kept the head, sword and banner of Saint George, patron saint of Russia

  • Are stat in this church for the wedding of a close friend. The Church is very old, beautiful, detail, used for weddings and you have to book at least a year in advance. Is decked out in a wonderful way and souvenir photos for the couple and the guests really leave open-mouthed for both internal and external beauty of the place. Posted in one of the biggest open air archaeological sites of the charming Rome

  • 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.
