Basilica di Sant’Elia

  

The Basilica of Sant’Elia rises in the Suppentonia Valley; it was built and enlarged between the 8th and 11th centuries. The portal is made up of antique marble slabs, some of them reused. The rams on the sides of the portal remove evil. Inside, the three naves are separated by two rows of columns with different capitals from the Roman era. The coeval capital of the building is that of the column in the counter-façade to the right of the portal. There, in 1260, stood a bell tower, collapsed in 1262. The floor is “cosmatesco”, dating 10th – 12th century. The ambo is the work of the 12th century. The frescoes in the transept can be dated to approximately 1125, signed by Stefano, Giovanni and Nicola, painters of the Roman school. The pictorial cycle has Christ the Redeemer, Saints Peter and Paul and two other saints in the apsidal basin; lambs, saints theory and two angels. On the right, the ancient men, the story of the death of St. Anastasio. Below is the cycle of the Apocalypse, one of the oldest and best preserved. The crypt is perhaps the first nucleus of the basilica.
