Basilica and Monastery of SS. Giovanni e Paolo in Rome1809
At the left can be seen the porch and part of the façade of the church. It is said to have been built on the site where the house of the patron saints, John and Paul, once stood. The two brothers died as martyrs in the 4th century AD. At centre we see the Romanesque bell tower dating from the mid- 12th century, surrounded by the monastery complex.
