The courtyard in front of the San Clemente church in Rome.

"Simply the most quintessentially Roman building in Rome: seventeen hundred years or so of Roman history, art, architecture, religion, and life piled one on top of another, woven into each other, still visible. From the bizarre, three levels down (a very well-preserved Mithraeum), to the stunningly beautiful top level (the remarkable gold mosaic of the Tree of Life rivals any of the famed mosaics in Ravenna or anywhere else) to the virtually incomprehensible but still compelling jumble of the fourth-century church and its successors in between, there is nothing like this Rome in a nutshell." (Joseph J. Walsh, Professor of Classics and History at Loyola University Maryland, in Robert Kahn's City Secrets: Rome).

Santi Quattro Coronati is an ancient basilica in Rome, Italy. The church dates back to the 4th (or 5th) century, and is devoted to four anonymous saints and martyrs. The complex of the basilica with its two courtyards, the fortified Cardinal Palace with the St. Silvester chapel, and the Monastery with its cosmatesque cloister is built in a silent and green part of Rome, between the Colosseum and San Giovanni in Laterano, in an out-of-time setting.

"Santi Quattro Coronati" means the Four Holy Crowned Ones [i.e. martyrs], and refers to the fact that the saints' names are not known, and therefore referred to with their number, and that they were martyrs, since the crown, together to the branches of palm, is an ancient symbol of martyrdom. According to the Passion of St. Sebastian, the four saints were soldiers who refused to sacrifice to Aesculapius, and therefore were killed by order of Emperor Diocletian (284-305). (Text from Wikipedia).

Wikipedia: It is the oldest and ranks first among the four Papal Basilicas or major basilicas of Rome (having the cathedra of the Bishop of Rome). It claims the title of ecumenical mother church among Roman Catholics. [...] The cathedral itself is located outside of the Vatican boundaries, within the city of Rome. However it has been granted a special extraterritorial status as one of the properties of the Holy See. This is also the case with several other buildings, after the solving of the Roman Question with the Lateran Treaty.
