Church of San Lorenzo

The Church of San Lorenzo overlooks a small square along the Corso Vecchio, the old main street of the ancient city that follows the internal route of the Via Flaminia.The Church, one of the oldest parish churches in the city, was built in the Romanesque period and in later centuries expanded, it was restored several times and partly rebuilt after heavy bombing damage during World War II.Its present appearance is the result of a deep restoration in the early decades of the 20thcentury by the architect Cesare Bazzani. These works led to the creation of two three-light windows on the façade and the restoration of the original scheme of the early Church, originating the two-level floors. The Church has a beautiful façade made of pietra sponga- the typical local porous limestone - enhanced by a XVIIthcentury marble portal decorated in racemes. The interior is very simple and cozy, characterized by the two floors levels and by a valuable XVIIthcentury painting depicting the martyrdom of San Biagio. On the altar on the right there is the statue of the Addoloratathat is walked in procession on Good Friday.
