Santi Quattro Coronati
The Four Holy Crowned Ones were martyrs of the early church, commemorated
by this huge basilica - today the home of an order of Augustinian nuns.
To the sisters
Come here to ask the nuns for the key to the Oratory or Chapel of San Sylvestro

The Oratory of Saint Sylvester
An inner courtyard of the Santo Quattro Coronati leads to the Oratorio di San Silvestro,
richly decorated with frescoes from 1246, showing the life of St Sylvester, who was pope
during the reign of Constantine, in the early 4th century.
