Third Century Titular Church

One of Rome’s first parishes, San Martino ai Monti originated sometime in the 3rd or 4th century as a house church (a church that met in a private residence). Originally built by Pope Sylvester and eventually encarnated in its present form by Pope Sergius II (who even used the original church’s columns in his design), this awesome minor basilica has a lot of history packed in such a small place. Whether you’re looking to get as much history as you can during your stay in Rome, or you’re just looking for a great place to snap a few stunning photos, San Martino ai Monti will add another fascinating facet to your trip.
