  • In the monastery/fortress of SS. Quattro Coronati check timetables and you can visit the oratorio di San Silvestro with its famous Romanesque frescoes (1248) that apparently naïve but extremely effective illustrate the legend of Constantine as is told in the "Vita beati Sylvestri": Constantine leprosy sufferer refuses to be cured with a bloodbath of children and thereby a providential dream appear St Peter and St Paul that the route from Pope Sylvester , who had taken refuge on Monte Soratte. Sylvester baptizing Constantine who heals and brings the Pope in Rome, where, kneeling before him, he makes a gift of the lordship of the city. This is the famous donation of Constantine, which never happened in the Middle Ages was considered to be the origin of the temporal power of the Church. Follow the stories of the Empress Helena, in front of which there is a dispute over the true religion between the Pope and the rabbis. Wins the Pope that resurrects a bull and then Elena, fully conquered to faith, recovers in Jerusalem the true cross of Christ by choosing between three. Finally the Pope free Rome from a dragon. In Church, 12th century apse fresco Cosmati floor with the "glory of all saints" by Giovanni Mannozzi from San Giovanni (1630). The Saints in heaven, looking halfway between God and Earth, looking towards the sky, but they are still very close and similar to the faithful who watch them from below. If you informed before, timetables and you like Gregorian chant, you can hear the Evensong by the nuns. From the church you can switch to the small and beautiful cloister of the 13th century. Won't be able to see the frescoes of the Gothic Classroom, (13th century), visited only by reservation, a month to the other, on the appropriate site. But it is worth going back for.

  • Beautiful architectural complex of the 11th century, rebuilt after the lot 1084 Norman perpetrated by Robert Guiscard, with an imposing structure, which is characterized by a high and old entrance tower, a beautiful church whose particularity is the area of the Gallery is very high with large Windows, with a beautiful cloister. But the most interesting and spectacular is the small chapel of San Silvestro, built in 1246 and 1248 frescoes. Revenue in the second courtyard and on the right hand side is the entrance to the cloister of the Augustinian nuns. Played and after a few minutes a nun behind the grating, after you ask to see the oratory that is facing, we will open the door. Entered here is the amazing beauty of the place. A fairly well preserved fresco cycle with 11 stories of Saint Sylvester and Constantine: manifesto in defence of the false donation of Constantine, told through the strokes still very well preserved by an unknown painter. Spectacular! Hyper-strategic recommended and not to be missed!

  • The Church was erected in the fourth century, in 1084 leaving the apse was rebuilt with small imutata. Recent excavations have brought to light the entrance to an underground tunnel that links this fortified the Cathedral of St. John, an escape route for Popes. In the portico of the first courtyard-laid unwanted babies.
