Description

According to legend, the chapel of the Church of Domine Quo Vadis stands on the site where Peter met Christ when he fled Rome to escape martyrdom. He asked: "Domine, quo vadis?", "Lord, where are you going?", and Christ answered: "To Rome, to be crucified again." This helped Peter to overcome his fear of martyrdom, and he returned to face his persecutors
