San Lorenzo Basilica was built between the end of 4th century and the beginning of the 5th century using materials from the close by Roman theater.

It is said that the project of the church has its origins in Byzantium and the features of the oriental art can be seen inside.

One of the most beautiful chapel of the church is Sant?Aquilino Chapel with its mosaic presenting the Christ surrounded by the Apostles, one of the finest examples of the paleochristian art from northern Italy.
