Church of San Giovanni in Apollo called a Pollo - Bassano Romano (VT)
The church of San Giovanni in Apollo called a Pollo is the main element of the homonymous rock nucleus which is located in the Rovignola ditch between Sutri and Bassano Romano. The complex, consisting of a series of rooms excavated on the vertical side of a tufaceous hill, is now completely detached from the road layout, takes place on the front of a hill, along the valley, hinged on the central element, the church. The origin of the name of this ancient church, now reduced to a warehouse for agricultural tools, is controversial, for some it represents yet another graft between pagan worship, for the god Apollo and the Christian one. More likely it derives from a deformation of the name Paolo, in all likelihood the church was in fact entitled to Saints John and Paul.
