  • The basilica of San Lorenzo in Lucina dates back to the 4th century, the place of residence of the Roman matron. The façade of the Church features large porch, decorated with six granite columns. The Interior has a nave with four chapels on each side leading to the altar, on which there is the painting of the crucified one of Guido Reni.

  • There are so many churches, that one has to prioritise which ones to see. This one made the list, as we are fans of Bernini, we also enjoyed the very ornate interior.  more »
  • Erected between the fourth and fifth century on the site of the House of the matron, Lucina has an entrance porch which houses medieval tombstones and marble fragments. The Interior has a single nave, with 17th-century gilded coffered ceiling. On the main altar is the painting "crucifixion", by Guido Reni. In one of the chapels, under the altar, there is an urn with the gridiron on which St. Lawrence suffered martyrdom. Another Chapel not to be missed is the "Fonseca", by Bernini, within which is the bust of Gabriele Fonseca, Portuguese doctor realized by Bernini, while the other portraits are the work of his students.
