Basilica of Saint Clement - Rome

The Basilica of Saint Clement is a minor basilica dedicated to Pope Clement I. Architecturally speaking the church is not one church but three, built on the foundations of a republican era building that had been destroyed in the Great Fire of 64. The present basilica was constructed just before the start of the 12th century upon a 4th century basilica that had previously been the domicile of a Roman nobleman. Part of this building had functioned briefly during the 1st century as an early church and its basement had briefly served as a Mithraeum in the 2nd century. The Basilica contains many awe-inspiring frescoes and other masterpieces, which pay tribute to the Catholic faith and the church’s 1st century origins. A visit to the Basilica of Saint Clement feels almost like a journey back in time!
