  • Sant'Agnese outside the walls is located in the Trieste district, in a crossroads of Via Nomentana. It consists of an articulated complex of buildings: the catacombs of St. Agnes, the 4th-century Constantine basilica of which the ruins with the walls remain, the Mausoleum of Santa Costanza and the Basilica on the Nomentana with the monastery attached. The basilica, called honorian, was built by Pope Honororio I in the first half of the 7th in place of the now dilapidated Basilica of The Cape, above the tomb of the martyr. Inside the stagnes complex on the great wall that supports the garden of st. Agnes's monastery is a striking replica of the Lourdes Cave. Along the wall to the left of the cave there are marble graves with the thanks received.

  • Sant Agnese fuori le Mura and the adjoining beautiful Santa Constanza are a few kilometres away from the tourist hotspot which is the centre of the Italian capital. The place is a beautiful early Christian ensemble of buildings, ruins and catacombs surrounding the tomb of Agnes. It is especially the silence and tranquility that accentuates the magnificent Byzantine apse and the beautiful architecture of the church. The 1600 year old late antique/early Christian mosaics in the handling of Santa Constanza are breathtakingly beautiful. Also visit the catacombs and return met with bus 80 or the Metro (they stop just about in the backyard!) to the hustle and bustle of Rome.

  • The structure is of shocking beauty. The matronei, the drawered ceiling, the mosaic above the apse with the saint in the center and the canopy altar are beautiful

  • Very difficult to find: -No signs or marking, just a writing in a green door. The service is slow and nearly to hear down in the caves if you are in the middle or back of the que. It is a place where they barried the dead, nothing moore...
  • Maybe the least touristed Catacomb, so special to walk down below ground, along side off graves from the first centuries. Absolutely a rekomendable place to visit.
  • Little quiet church. Far away from the tourist. A place to pray for saint Agnes.
  • Amazing fourth century mosaics in stunningly good condition. Bring coins for the offering slot to have them lit up properly. Also keep an eye on the ceilings, with their variety of mosaics, from geometric to cupids to florals to figural to birds... For such a small church, it's amazing stuff, especially if you're interested in the art of late antiquity.
  • An hidden gem in Rome. Maybe not the place you would go if you are on a trip to Rome but definitely worth a visit if you find yourself in the neighborhood
