Via Aurelia Antica, Rome
The church of S.Pancrazio was erected for the pope S.Simmaco (498-514), on the cemetery site of the catacombs to honour the tomb of the young martyr Pancrazio. Next to the basilica was built the hospice for the pilgrims. The whole construction was rebuilt under Honorius I in the 7th century. In the late 16th century the cardinal De Torres restored the church and gave it the new look; it was seriously damaged during the siege of 1849.

Close to the Villa Doria Pamphili park, St. Peter's Basilica and just a few minutes, by public transport, from the Vatican.
