The Church of Santa Giovanni Porta Latina is a titular three-aisled basilica located near the Latin Gate of the Aurelian Wall.
The very first church on this site was built back in the 5th century, and was rebuilt several times over the centuries. The first large-scale restructuring took place in 720, then in 1191 under Celestine III, and the basilica acquired its baroque style at the turn of the XVI – XVII centuries. In 1940-1941, during the last restoration work, the medieval appearance of the temple was recreated.
The cycle of frescoes dating from the 13th century, depicting scenes from the New and Old Testaments, deserves special attention in the basilica.
