  • 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.

  • This is a unique oldest Romanesque church in adjacent to the Circo Massimo and Palatinskim bridge. It is believed that the Temple stands on the spot where the Shepherd Fastul found nurtured heart twins Romulus and Remus. Inside the ancient ascetic atmosphere and well-preserved fresco of the late 13th century above the altar.

  • Church with a beautiful architectural structure, easy to spot for the tower and Portico entrance to the balusters intrigued ... Walking really are many things to see and appreciate.

  • 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'.
  • I got married in this church is beautiful, simple, old, significant representing Christianity srmplice and strong over time: beautiful!
