“Santa Lucia”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Going into the Catacombs was indescribable. My aunts and father had played in them as children. The story of Santa Lucia and the beauty of the Basilica was overwhelming.

Reviewed 21 July 2013

Amazing on the inside and wonderfully serene and calm. We lit some candles to St Lucia and listened to Mass from the back.

“Caravaggio - not to be missed”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

If you like the work of the great Caravaggio then you must not miss his masterpiece in this church. His use of light and of the canvas is something special.
