Very unusual place

The area around the tunnel is adapted for pedestrians, several hiking routes pass through it, and there are also benches from which you can admire the passing trains.

Bezvadné pro sobotní či nedělní patranicko

Šli jsme s Jimmýkem pro kešku, zastavili jsme se a koukali jak jezdí vlaky tunely, hezká podívaná a nebyli jsme tam sami, na vyhlídku tam chodí dost lidí.

Doufám, že brzy bude příležitost svézt se vlakem tímto směrem a pokochat se tunelem nejen zvenčí

Historic Site of the week

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
