San Nicola in Carcere

San Nicola in Carcere

The relics of Sts. Marcllinus, Faustinus, Simplicius, and Beatrice (†303) are kept in a green porphyry urn in the confessio of San Nicola in Carcere. The church also has relics of St. Alexis. The church was built on the site of three Roman temples which were converted into a prison in the Middle Ages.
