Built in honor of the martyred St. Agnes
Sant'Agnese fuori le Mura was erected by Constantine’s niece, Costanza, to honor St. Agnes and to conserve this martyr’s remains. The church that is used today was built in the 7th century and carries the Byzantine style. St. Agnes Outside the Walls is also known for its mosaics and catacombs.
Within the walls of Sant'Agnese fuori le Mura, visitors will be impressed by the mosaic in the apse, which portrays St. Agnes with the symbols of martyrdom and the Popes Simmaco and Onorio at the sides. St. Agnes Outside the Walls has been restored several times, one of which added its bell tower and gilded-wood coffered ceiling. Beneath the high altar is the tomb of the martyrs Agnes and Emerenziana, with a 1605 statue of Emerenziana above the altar.
