These great Roman columns were named "Columns of San Lorenzo." These are the remains of the original church that existed here, a church from the 3rd century AD.
The basilica was built at about 400 AD. Over the years it has been hit several times, from fires and earthquakes. In the 16th century, it was restored while preserving the original Byzantine structure. The church has a selection of frescoes and mosaics, depicting stories from the New Testament, from the path of Jesus.
The basilica has 4 turrets that can be viewed from all over the city. From there you will see the steps and the park outside the church, where many of the city's tourists and city visitors come to sit.
Around the basilica there are quite a few cafes, restaurants and good bars.
