A small church that marks the spot where Peter asked a vision of Jesus, "Lord, where are you going?" Jesus replied, "I am coming to Rome to be crucified again." Peter reluctantly decided to join him back to town and was arrested and executed. The stone allegedly imprinted with Jesus' footprints here is a replica. The original is in the... More

As a child I loved the book Qvo Vadis -forget the old & newer Hollywood versions of this classic, just read the book. There are some more modern translations to English, so pick one up. This is a very tiny historic church. The oral tradition tells us that during Nero's persecution of Christians (first such in Roman Empire) St Peter... More

At the beginning of Via Appia Antica there is this small church. It is not ancient, but still it is very pleasant and quiet.

Our guided tour started here and we learned that it was at this location that St. Peter has a vision of Jesus while he was fleeing Rome to escape persecution. They have a conversation and Jesus told him to return to Rome to accept his fate. In the church in cement if a replica of Jesus's feet.

We came across this lovely little church a while back when we visited the catacombs. A simple little church with a lovely alter, saw the foot print of Jesus were he stood when he told St. peter that he was going back to Rome to be crucified again.

here has been a sanctuary on the spot since the ninth century, but the current church is from 1637. The current façade was added in the 17th century. It has been supposed that the sanctuary might have been even more ancient, perhaps a Christian adaption of some already existing temple: the church is in fact located just in front of... More
