Description

SANT'EUSTACHIO The church dates back to the early Christian period and, according to tradition, it was founded by emperor Costantino on Sant'Eustachio’s house, martyred and buried there in 120. In the past it represented a rescue center for the poor people. The church’s structure was widely modified during C.XII and transformed by Antonio Canevari after 1724. The Romanesque bell-tower is one of the few remainings of the Medieval church. The Baroque façade, preceded by a porch, is crowned by a deer head with a cross amidst its horns, recalling the deer that appeared to the Saint in a dream. In the inside, the paintings in the transept are by Giacomo Zoboli. The high altar, rich of marbles and bronzes, is by Nicola Salvi (1739), while the canopy that surmounts it is by Ferdinando Fuga.
