Mosaic flooring

 
 

The church is divided into five naves by four rows of Corinthian pillars with pictures of the apostles on them. The names are written in Greek and Latin and many visitors have carved their own signatures over the centuries. The floor of the nave has a hole that allows you to see 60 cm below what remains of the Byzantine mosaics erected by Constantine in 325, that covered the original church floor.
