About Santi Celso e Giuliano (Basilica of Saints Celsus and Julian):The church can easily be overlooked from the outside, since it is on a narrow street, but is well worth a visit.
It has a beautiful high altar was designed by Pompeo Batoni in 1738. In addition, there are six side chapels with some wonderful works of art.
Although the church is worthy of a visit in itself, there is another reason to stop here: As of Christmas Eve, 2019 the Basilica has come under the care of The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.
They will be offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (traditional Latin Mass) on Sundays and Feast Days at 10:00 a.m. and will be present during the week for confessions and adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament. This is a wonderful gift for those visiting Rome and wishing to find a Latin Mass.
