This early Christian church is within walking distance from the apartment and contains one of the most extensive and complete catacombs in Rome. It stands on the crypt of the 13 year old martyr, St. Agnes who was buried in AD304 during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. The church is said to have been built at the request of the Emperor Constantine's daughter, Constantia, after she had prayed at the tomb of St. Agnes for delivery from leprosy.
