Description

The Basilica of San Vitale, consecrated by Pope Innocent I, was originally a chapel dedicated to San Gervasio and San Protasio. The roman church, located close the Palazzo delle Esposizioni, has been renovated several times by various popes who have maintained it over the centuries. Today the church has one nave and the porch was restored during the 19th century. Inside the roman basilica you can admire beautiful frescoes by Agostino Ciampelli, which represent the stages of martyrdom of San Vitale and other frescoes attributed to Andrea Comodo. On the door of the church you will see an inscription with the arms of Sixtus IV.
