Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina

7 -San_lorenzo_in_lucina_051208-01

The square is named after San Lorenzo Basilica dedicated to the saint when you were deposited some relics attributed to the martyr. Lucina according to tradition was the name of a rich Roman matron, owner of the old home church, but being also an epithet of Juno Lucina, mother of the gods, it is very likely that the church was once a shrine dedicated to her.

Recently, the hypothesis that it may be just the ancient “Temple of Juno Lucina”. was corroborated by the discovery, during excavations under the Chapter House, a well and a wonderful mosaic intact, with white marble steps and frescoed walls. In addition to the church of San Lorenzo in Lucina, is an ideal place for a walk and maybe a stop at one of its historic bar.
