  Santa Francesca Romana
by martin_nl

The most important piece in this nice church is a stone with the imprints of the knees of Peter and Paul. Legend has it that a magician Simon Magus, wanted to prove that he was more powerful than the two apostels. When the magician was floating in the air, Peter and Paul fell on their knees and prayed to God to show who was the most powerful. Simon fell on the ground and died.
