  • Very nice church with an unusual circular has been operating mini air distance and light. A pleasant feeling of space contrasts with the not very pleasant feeling when you view the frescoes on the walls that show different passion of Saints.

  • It is not the first time I visit the amazing Basilica of Santo Stefano Rotondo. Find it on the Caelian Hill, along a narrow lane, currently surrounded by the hurdles for the Metro c. When you enter remains ecstatic from its unusual architecture roundabout, by the magnificence and power of the Colonnade, by the light, by the frescoes of the painters Pomarancio, storm and Circignani. Then you come home and you documents and surprise grows. -The Basilica of Santo Stefano Rotondo is wanted by Pope Saha in the 5th century, is circular like the early Christian shrines of the East. -Many transformations of the Basilica with Pope Innocent II in 1130 and then with Pope Nicholas V in 1453. -Is dedicated to the martyr Stephen from the 1st century, stoned by the Jews. -Seems to have been built on part of the barracks of the 2nd century AD Castra Peregrina-Was dedicated to the cult of Mithras, Oriental deity of Persian origin. I have given you some information, but the visit is a pleasure and a historic duty.

  • Circular of the 5th century building, construrido on a temple to Mitra, visited qie with various modifications through time, presents essentially the State that was in the 14TH century, after an important refdorma that suffered in the 12TH century, which added the triple arch for support of the cover and was removed the outer ambulatory respecting until today the beautiful chapel of Saints cousin and Feliciano of the 6TH century, which together with circular plant, a great beauty and originality, and the cycle of frescoes by Circignani and Antonio Tempesta of 16TH century, give the whole a singularity which makes essential visit.

  • Unmissable: one of the oldest ROUND churches of Rome, very well hidden on Celio hill. Impressive frescoes with Christian martyrs being tortured .
  • Nice church,very different from others I have seen,because of its round shape. The entrance is a bit hard to find. Once you found it proofed closed. So orientate yourself on beforehand.

  • Very interesting but also a scary place.
  • The basilica of Santo Stefano Rotondo is a place of Catholic worship in the 5th century in Rome on the Caelian Hill, in rione Monti. He was also known as Santo Stefano in Girimonte, Santo Stefano in Querquetulano (because of its proximity to an Oak Grove), Santo Stefano in capita Africæ (because of its proximity to an ancient street called Caput Africæ).
