Basilica di San Clemente Al Laterano
Basilica di San Clemente was built in the 12th century and represents typical Romanesque style, although overlaid with later alterations and additions - including an 18th century Baroque facade (which is using the 12th century colums in its construction). Underneath the 12th century building are remains of one eight centuries older. It's likely that this 4th century church housed the relics of St Clement, the fourth pope to whom the Basilica is dedicated. Under the 12th century building, and below the remains of the 4th century one, lies a Roman structure around two thousand years old, containing a temple of Mithras: the altar depicting Mithras slaying the bull is sitting directly under the apse of the Christian church. The current church contains mosaics dating to the 12th century, filling the apse with the image of the Cross as the Tree of Life. The Basilica contains also some frescos from 11th and 15th centuries.
