Santa Prassede

9th century mosaics on the vault of the San Zeno chapel.
Founded on the Esquiline in the 9th century, Santa Prassede has some of the finest mosaics in Rome created by Byzantine artists. The small San Zeno Chapel which preserves a part of the column to which Christ was allegedly flogged, is a brilliant gem of gold and blue
