Sant Agnese fuori le Mura, Rome

#118 of 525 in Historic Sites in Rome
The church of Saint Agnes Outside the Walls (Italian: Sant'Agnese fuori le mura) is a titulus church, minor basilica in Rome, on a site sloping down from the Via Nomentana, which runs north-east out of the city, still under its ancient name. What are said to be the remains of Saint Agnes are below the high altar. The church is built over the Catacombs of Saint Agnes, where the saint was originally buried, and which may still be visited from the church. A large basilica with the same name was built nearby in the 4th century and its ruins can be seen near Santa Costanza, in the same site. The existing church was built by Pope Honorius I in the 7th century, and largely retains its original structure, despite many changes to the decoration. In particular the mosaic in the apse of Agnes, Honorius, and another Pope is largely in its original condition. The current Cardinal Priest of the Titulus S. Agnetis Extra moenia is Camillo Ruini.

  • Way off the beaten path but definitely worth the effort is the Church dedicated to Saint Agnes, a very young early Christian martyr. This lovely little church, formerly part of a much larger complex.....  more »
  • This site is a little out of the way but it is easily visited (and it's really worth the trip, doesn't take long), by getting off at Metro stop St. Agnese/Annibaliano on a branch of the B metro line.....  more »

  • Very difficult to find: -No signs or marking, just a writing in a green door. The service is slow and nearly to hear down in the caves if you are in the middle or back of the que. It is a place where they barried the dead, nothing moore...
  • Maybe the least touristed Catacomb, so special to walk down below ground, along side off graves from the first centuries. Absolutely a rekomendable place to visit.
