  • In 2017, Mass was being celebrated on weekdays at 6:30, and Sundays at 10:00 except the last Sundays of the months of September to June when it was at 11:00. This is an important 4th century church which has very limited opening hours. Note that the railing gates closing off the front loggia are rarely open. To visit the church, go through the former entrance to the right of the façade, straight on through the courtyard and enter via the door in the top right hand corner. This brings you into the church just by the sanctuary. Note that a lot of the photos posted here are off-subject.
  • Very cute church to visit if you happen to be close to the Baths of Caracalla. The hours that it is open are very limited however - when I was there is was open at 6-7am and not again until 4:30pm.
