Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, Rome
(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful circular mausoleum located within the monumental complex of Sant'Agnese fuori le mura. Built in the 4th century, inside you will find beautiful mosaics scenes

  • The mausoleum of the Emperor's daughter Konstanina the great Costanza built in 4 century, far outside the city walls, near the catacombs. A miracle that this tomb is preserved. Before reaching her wasn't easy. Now easily accessible by Metro. Building a circular shape, outside nondescript. The vaults of the Paleochristian mosaics preserved monument 4 century. Mosaic still quite primitive. Many plant and animal ornamentation. You can see how little people on carts harvested grapes. Gorgeous mosaics characteristic color. The sarcophagus of Constance of porphyry is now in the Vatican museums.

  • It is outside the tourist circuit and is worth the trip to visit it. A must-see testament to the paleocristianismo and a very good example of the uses from the technical and conceptual.

  • 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 ...
