  • This church on the Appian Way houses Bernini's last work... Great! To visit absolutely
    View original
  • The basilica is above the catacombs of St. Sebastian and is part of the end of the tour guided by the catacombs, contains the tomb of San Sebastian and also a sculpture of Bernini de Cristo, one of the last found of the great sculptor, it is worth going if you stand on a tour of the catacombs and the Appia Way. In addition there are various relics that are interesting, it is a simple church but with an important content.

  • This church is really hard to reach, use bus 118, but it is most important to see one of the most beautiful sculptures of Bernini that is his last: the saviour of the world, il salvatore del mondo. Do not walk the via appia antica, where it is used by cars. It is extremely dangerous. To go back to Rome use the bus station Appia Pignatelli/Appia Antica of the 118...
  • Definitely the less flashy of the 7 Churchs in Rome. But it is wonderful to see the sculpture and Jesus footsteps.
  • A wonderful place to visit. They have relics of St Sebastian and a casting of Jesus’ “Quo Vadis” footprints. There’s also a beautiful marble sculpture of St Sebastian. You should visit the adjacent catacombs as well.
  • Quite an unassuming church. The exterior is quite beautiful. Nice place for Christmas mass.
  • Thankfully not so much of a tourist destination, so there was plenty of time for prayer while on pilgrimage. I'm not sure why something from an Apocryphal text is venerated in the Church. The cafe connected to the Church was ok.
