9 San Sebastiano Gate near Roman Forum in Rome, Italy

As you approach the entry of the Roman Forum, a narrow road veers off to the left. Most people are not curious enough to see where it goes. You will first encounter this Gate of San Sebastiano al Palatino. A short distance away is the church. This is where Saint Sebastian was martyred in 287 during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. He was first bound to a tree and shot with arrows. After miraculously recovering, he loudly harassed the emperor who quickly ordered him clubbed to death.
