About the Basilica of St Clement

The foundation of the Basilica contain remnants of a republican era building destroyed by the Great Fire of 64 AD. The building, once a Roman Nobleman’s home, was transformed to a 1st century church, dedicated to Pope Clement I.  During the 2nd century, a mithraeum was built in the courtyard of the insula. One of the largest Early Medieval wall painting is found in the lower part of the Basilica.
