  • Everyone deserves to know this place to have an idea a little distant even from what Peter and Paul (the Apostles) have been through!

  • Renamed St. Peter in prison since it is said that the Saint was imprisoned here before his martyrdom, this ancient Roman prison is located virtually in the foundations of the Capitol, just steps from the wall of the famous "geese" who saved Rome from the barbarians many centuries later. It is interesting to read how they ended up here on the tombstone, killed or strangled as the revolutionary Jugurtha King of Numidia or followers of Catiline. Is the first example of lager ... prisoners were thrown into this narrow cave without Windows since the opening top used perhaps to lay under bread and water. Recovered from the captors with a rope the convicts were executed in front of the Roman Forum or deleted directly here. Typically strangled. The system is quite similar to the cell of Benvenuto Cellini in Castel s. Angelo or Cagliostro in San Leo (Forlì).

  • The Church San Pietro in Carcere is built on the site where the Apostle Peter was arrested before he was killed. Worth paying for your visit to the Museum that gives access to the prison. You'll be thrilled, especially if it is Christian.
