The tiny medieval church of San Benedetto in Piscinula boasts the smallest bell-tower in Rome. It was built in the 11th century and one of its bells is dated 1069, which makes it the oldest in the city.
The nave is divided from the aisles by a motley collection of antique columns, which sport a variety of capitals. The pavement is Cosmatesque.
