  • Small church located in Piazza de San Silvestro. Another of those jewels that houses Rome on its four sides. No crowds, a little gem almost unknown.

  • Little-known and frequented church that should be more valued. Stunning the bell tower, many remains outside the ancient and pre-existing pagan temple, inside a beautiful canvas of the Gentileschi and the relic of the Baptist John. To visit.

  • Named by area on which is located - the Basilica of St. Sylvester. It was built on the ruins of the ancient temple of the Sun in the 8th century. The name "capite" hears the Latin "head." Inside the church is a part of the head of John the Baptist. It is considered a church of English Catholics. Inside is richly decorated with marble, frescoes and paintings.

  • Beautiful church with a Chapel at the left of the vestibule with a relic of St. John the Baptist.
  • Gorgeous church and a total hidden hem in the heart of Rome.
  • The church was built in the 8th century as a shrine for the relics of the saints and martyrs from the catacombs, and by that you can see a lot of relics in the walls. You should visit the neighbouring cloister too as it is inside the poste italiane and in great condition...
  • Beautiful. Worth a visit if in the area.
  • Great light for photography in the morning
