San Giovanni Evangelista: View from West

View from West

View of San Giovanni Evangelista from the west. The basilica was built c.426-30 by Galla Placidia, in fulfillment of a vow. It was badly damaged by bombs in 1944 but rebuilt to its original form. The campanile dates from the 10th to 14th centuries; the marble portal is from the 14th century.
