Santi Apostoli

Chiesa dei Santi Apostoli

The Romanesque church of Santi Apostoli is one of the oldest churches of the city. According to legend it was founded by Charlemagne but documents state it in 1075.

It stands very close to the Roman baths in the attractive Piazza del Limbo, where babies were buried (limbo) in very old times. Inside the church fine marble columns and capitals; a tabernacle of the Sacrement by Giovanni della Robbia.

At the beginning of the left nave, in a niche, visitors can see the three flints putatively from the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, linked to the ceremony of the Scoppio del Carro (explosion of the cart) and the lighting of fireworks.
