Sacello SS. Martiri Concordiesi



This is the Sacello dei Ss. Martiri Concordiesi, a tiny chapel along the river Lemène that remembers the first Christian martyrs of Concordia. They were 72 and were killed in 304 AD in this place along the river. You can read more about them here (in Italian) and here (in English).
