Description

The Basilica of St Stephen in the Round on the Coelium Hill, built around the fifth century, belongs to the Germanic-Hungarian Pontifical College in Rome. The portico of the church and the triple arch was built at the behest of Pope Innocent III. The facade opens onto a garden surrounded by roman walls and inside you can delight in the paintings and various works by the great artists of the past such as Pomarancio and Antonio Tempesta. Following archaeological excavations "mitreo" from the second or third century was discovered. The church was built over a Roman barracks named "Castra peregrina".
