  • Of The three churches present is the smallest. The name is due to the vision of Saint Bernard who, in ecstasy, saw a staircase on which the Angels were leading to Heaven the souls freed from Purgatory. The Church has an octagonal plan and has a very harmonious interior, underneath it opens the crypt that houses an altar dedicated to Saint Zeno and the Martyrs soldiers. Behind The altar there are two windows where you can see: On the left a small pagan altar dedicated to the goddess Dia; On the right a small space where, according to tradition, Saint Paul was held prisoner before the decapitation.

  • The Church is simple but very interesting inside. Its focal point is the crypt where an altar with magnificent frescoes is kept. Recommended!

  • Located within the complex of the Abbey of the Tre Fontane (via delle Acque Salvie, 1, Laurentina) and is the Church in which there is a crypt with the cell in which St. Paul was imprisoned. The Church, very bright, is a Greek cross with decorations and works of merit.

Inside the memory of Saint Zeno that, according to the tradition in part legendary was here martyred under Diocletian with its over ten thousand soldiers. In the crypt what is shown as the last prison of St. Paul before the near martyrdom.
