Basilica San Clemente

Recommendations

The Basilica di San Clemente is a minor basilica dedicated to Pope Clement I. This temple is remarkable because archaeologically, it records the history of Rome from the beginning of Christianity up until the Middle Ages.

Notes from Basilica San Clemente:
The basilica of S. Clemente is located about three hundred meters beyond the Colosseum, on the slightly uphill road that leads from the valley between Colle Oppio and the Celio to San Giovanni in Laterano. It takes its name from S. Clemente Papa, third successor of S. Pietro, who died around the year 100 AD. , he wrote that nominis eius memoriam usque hodie Romae extructa ecclesia custodii. But in 1857 Father Joseph Mullooly, then Prior of San Clemente, began excavation work under the current basilica during which he not only discovered the original basilica, from the 4th century, immediately below, but also, at a still level lower, the remains of even older buildings, from the 1st century.
