San Lorenzo in Lucina review Rate it

This 12th-century church was built on the site of a titulus, which in turn is believed to stand on the site of an ancient well sacred to Juno. The church's exterior incorporates Roman columns, while the 17th-century interior contains Bernini portrait busts in the Fonseca Chapel, a kitsch 17th-century Crucifixion by Guido Reni and a monument to French artist Nicolas Poussin, who died in Rome in 1665. In the first chapel on the right is a grill, reputed to be the one on which the martyr St Lawrence was roasted to death.
