  • Rome is to be discovered even for churches like this one, far from the Baroque magnificence and more human scale, while retaining absolute masterpieces, like the extraordinary mosaic in the apse of the early 5th century. Visit along with the nearby wonder of Santa Prassede.

  • Wow, how many beautiful words here said about St. Pudenciane-"Saint who never lived" (so called article in the newspaper La Repubblica). Unique Temple, the oldest, really, is to place the House Pudenta (or Pounds), who, along with daughter Prassede professed Christianity in those difficult times and hidden and buried the bodies of martyrs for the faith. Only one daughter. Ancient historians found the inscription "Ecclesia Pudenciana" which means Pudentova Church, saw wrong. And the second daughter-Pood Pudenziana. The Catholic Church of the holy name was recognized by the error was removed from the Roman calendar of Saints in 1969 year. Rename Church.

  • The oldest temple of Santa Pudenziana is located two streets from Santa Maria Maggiore, but there are no tourists here. Only rare pilgrims meet. The temple is astonishing for its history and the oldest Roman mosaics 390 years, broke from the canons of Byzantine mosaics. The dome was painted by Pomarančo.

  • We visited this beautiful church after being to S Maria Maggiore. After being there it was lovely to find this quiet and peaceful church, one of the oldest in Rome. It is lower that street level and built from part of a Roman bath. The mosaics are charming nd have a real liveliness to them. A stunning church to go to and the nun at the door was very helpful. Don't miss it!
  • Worth a visit when seeing St Mary Major.
