Santa Passera is a church in the south of Rome on the other bank of the curve in the river Tiber from the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls. The current church, erected in the ninth century, incorporated a Roman tomb. The church served a small community of miners who worked in the tuff quarries of the nearby hills.The interior retains some remnants of medieval frescoes.NameThere is no Saint Passera. Its name is a linguistic corruption of "Abbas Cyrus" ("Father Cyrus"), by way of Abbaciro, Appaciro, Appacero, Pacero, Pacera, and finally Passera. This name is in reference to the Egyptian saints Cyrus and John, whose relics were brought to Rome in the fifth century.Plan to visit Chiesa di Santa Passera alla Magliana and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Rome attractions using our Rome trip planning tool.
Chiesa di Santa Passera alla Magliana Reviews
A medieval jewel in Magliana where you cannot expet it. Tbe name is "false" a Saint called Passera doesn't exist and it comes from a mistake. The church is usually closed. Inside paints..
Santa will pass The Church of Santa Passera is a Roman church dating from the early fifth century, renovated and enlarged in the FOURTEENTH century, built on the remains of a Roman mausoleum and a crypt dating back to the second half of the II century. A small church that was part of the Arvali forest. But not as poor as it would have been logical for a little country church. His frescoes are beautiful. Sadly raked, and forgotten. Of the crypt remains little but what remains is exceptional. The vault hides little secrets that has revealed to me the Guardian "The Last of the Templars". A kind man over 80 years old...... But you wouldn't say! He has revealed so many secrets and many wonderful stories. Including his life too. It's worth a visit. And you will discover things that you humans..........
