This is the church of San Nicola da Tolentino agli Orti Sallustiani (Saint Nicholas of Tolentino in the Gardens of Sallust), one of the two national churches of Armenia. It was built for the Discalced Augustinians in 1599, and originally dedicated to the 13th century Augustinian monk, St. Nicholas of Tolentino...


Ruins of the Servian Wall, an ancient Roman defensive barrier constructed around the city of Rome in the early 4th century BC. Servian Wall.

In the 3rd century AD it was superseded by the construction of the larger Aurelian Walls...
