On Nov. 29th 2019 I had the great chance and pleasure to visit this amazing church. For sure it is the most interesting place in Brindisi. And it is so because of the great help and intelligently told story of Angelo and his lady-colleague. They are people who invite visitors as if it is in their home, they like and love the sight they are responsible for and willingly share all they know about the history, architecture and all details about the church inside and outside (incl. the wonderful garden). They make you feel very special - with this personal attitude towards you. They are well educated and prepared to discuss any theme about the church and Brindisi as a whole. It was my most interesting time of that my one day in Brindisi. It was a privilege for me to meet these so nice people and I am most grateful for this. I send them my very best regards! Thanks once again! And nobody should miss this place! Krassimira - Sofia, Bulgaria

In addition to the well preserved architecture and some frescos in good shape, there are little symbols carved in hidden spots that were messages to early Christians that this was a safe house. Definitely get the docent to walk you around and show you some of them, as well as getting explanations of some of the frescos. There are placards in English and Italian. It should take you 30-60 minutes to thoroughly tour the garden as well as the open sections of the church (the basement and its mosaics are closed but visible from the main floor.

Building was different because it was round which is unusual. The frescoes at one time were probably fantastic but unfortunately little remains. Look for the great carvings around the door going to the garden.

This is a very interesting place to visit. The curator was very knowledgeable and showed us interesting details which we would otherwise have missed. It's small but full of history and well worth a visit.

Hidden away in the maze of narrow streets, it is however well signposted. The 'guardian' was knowledgeable and helpful. Photography, without flash is allowed. Apart from its famous alfresco paintings, well worth a visit in their own right, do look out for the stone carvings around the doors, both the main entrance and the old main entrance which is to the west of the church facing where the altar would have stood. Entrance is free. There is also a restful, beautifully laid out garden to the back of the Tempio,
