Portico of the first courtyard of the basilica of the Four Holy Crowned Ones between the Colosseum and San Giovanni in Laterano in Rome, Italy. The church dates back to the 4th (or 5th) century, and is devoted to four anonymous saints and martyrs. In building the church after the total destruction due to Robert Guiscard's troops during the Norman Sack of Rome (1084), Pope Paschal II added two courtyards, one in front of the other; the first corresponding to the original 9th century courtyard, while the second was sited over the initial part of the nave.

Entrance of the ancient basilica of the Four Holy Crowned Ones between the Colosseum and San Giovanni in Laterano in Rome, Italy. The church dates back to the 4th (or 5th) century, and is devoted to four anonymous saints and martyrs. The complex of the basilica with its two courtyards, the fortified Cardinal Palace with the Saint Silvester Chapel, and the monastery with its cosmatesque cloister is built in a silent and green part of Rome, between the Colosseum and San Giovanni in Laterano, in an out-of-time setting. The first church, was burned to the ground by Robert Guiscard's troops during the Norman Sack of Rome (1084). Instead of rebuilding the original basilica to scale, Pope Paschal II built a smaller basilica. The original apse of the basilica, however, was preserved, and seems oversized for the new church, whose nave was divided into three parts by means of columns. The new church was consecrated on 20 January 1116. In the 13th century a Cosmatesque cloister was added.
