information: 2018 the interior of the church is being restored
San Lorenzo in Lucina is a minor basilica just off Via del Corso, dedicated to Saint Lawrence, martyr and patron saint of comedians and chefs.
There has been a church on this spot from as far back as the 4th century.
The facade dates from the 12th century and the interior has been redesigned and remodeled many, many times.
Inside are some beautiful altarpieces that are still in situ.
At the high altar is The Crucifixion by Guido Reni this dates from 1640. Underneath is the relic of the gridiron that roasted San Lorenzo.
