The San Giovanni in Laterno district is situated in the southwest corner of Rome. Its central points are the San Giovanni Basilica and the Laterano Palace, which was the residence of the popes in the Middle Ages. Both of these buildings are located on the San Giovanni Piazza. The Battistero S. Giovanni was built by Constantine. At one point all Romans, or perhaps all those Romans who really counted, were baptized there. Other sights that you should see include the ruins of the beautiful circular temple of the Minerva Medica, the brick Castrense amphitheatre, and the neighboring Church of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme.
