Chiesa di Santa Bibiana

154 Via Giovanni Giolitti , near Termini
Rome , Italy

Located in San Giovanni, this small, basilica-style church is dedicated to the virgin martyr Saint Bibiana. Originally built in 467, the church was restored in 1224 and again in 1624, when Bernini built the present pale-yellow façade—his first architectural design. Inside, one of the columns is said to be that upon which Bibiana was flogged to death, and her statue, also by Bernini, depicts her with the palm leaf of martyrs. The church contains frescoes by Pietro da Cortona and Agostino Ciampelli as well as an alabaster urn holding the remains of the saint and her mother and sister.
