Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, Rome

(140+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Built during the 4th century by Emperor Constantine as a mausoleum for his daughter, Mausoleo di Santa Costanza remains one of the earliest Christian buildings with a central dome. The interior mosaics, once a key component of the mausoleum's decorations, no longer exist. The ambulatory contains two apses, each with mosaics depicting Christ Pantocrator, probably dating back the 5th and 7th centuries. Mausoleo di Santa Costanza is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Rome Edition.

  • Today, we were a mausoleum, which is somewhat hidden. A visit which is really worth. The old architecture combined with wonderful mosaics is more than worth a visit. We can only recommend a visit, which is free of charge all 'Church' sights

  • to see; great beauty; Late Imperial mosaics beautiful. The place is worth moving from the Center. You can get there by bus along the nomentana or metro and two hundred meters of moderate ascent on foot. Remember to put the dime to turn on the lights.

  • The building is within the complex of the Basilica of Sant'Agnese fuori le mura, was erected to house the tomb of Constance, daughter of Constantine, near the basilica of Constantine and was transformed into a church. Preserves important mosaics and s characterized as central plant model reused later for martyrs buildings. I suggest visiting the complex, especially the catacombs, which can be visited accompanied by an excellent guide archaeology graduate.

  • I was here when a wedding had just finished. I really had to think about the lyrics of Beatles song Eleanor Rigby,when I saw all the rice to be picked up at the floor. Wonderful experience!
  • Fascinating place. We happened on a small wedding there. We'll worth the trip. Off the B1 Metro line at the S. Angese/Anniliana station.
  • My wife and I have here the sacrament of marriage contract ... unforgettable. Beautiful from the altar by Spouses to see in everyone's face. Magical place ...
