San Giovanni a Porta Latina

San Giovanni a Porta Latina Early Christian Basilica

San Giovanni a Porta Latina

Early Romanesque basilica

The inconspicuous brick church of San Giovanni a Porta Latina was built in the 5th Century near the Latin Gate. The original church was erected by Pope Celestine III in 720 and restored in 1191. The church with its pillared portico and the classic bell tower still bears all the typical signs of a Roman hall basilica. Worth seeing in the interior are the arched arcades resting on ancient columns and a fresco cycle from the Hohenstaufen period. The 46 Biblical scenes are among the most valuable medieval frescoes in Rome.
