SAN GIOVANNI A PORTA LATINA

ST JOHN AT THE LATIN GATE 

 

   A marvelous bell-tower from the 10th or 11th century  rises above the Basilica to the height of five stories, with the top three stories graced with tall slender triple arches.

   The half-hexagon structure of the sanctuary give testimony to the influence of Byzantine architecture.
