"The town of Schemnitz [the original German name of the town] itself merits more description than we have bestowed upon it. From the mountainous nature of the territory on which it stands, the buildings, scattered up and down, (some being stationed upon eminences, and others in low situations,) exhibit a picturesque appearance. As a place of residence, it is very agreeable; and the windows and fronts of the houses, being painted of different colours, give an air of gaiety to the streets." (Edward Daniel Clarke: Travels in Various Countries of Europe, Asia and Africa, London 1818).

"What makes this church so architecturally fascinating is the fact that the present building is formed from the union of two plainly visible structures. As one proceeds down the nave and up the steps to the altar (all belonging to the thirteenth-century building), the capitals and upper shafts of the columns of the original sixth-century church come into view on either side. Leaning over the railing of the chancel, you can see the rest of these columns with their bases and pedestals twelve feet below." (Robert Kahn (Ed.): City Secrets Rome: The Essential Insider’s Guide, 2011).

"The church was founded in the 8th century, or possibly even earlier. The church was recorded as a diaconia (a centre for helping the poor and the sick) at the end of the pontificate of Pope Gregory II (715-731). It is mentioned in some documents dating from the 10th and 11th centuries, where this church is called in platana (between the plane trees) referring to the tree planted in the garden of the martyr Eustace. The emperor Constantine I had previously built an oratory on this same spot. This church was called "ad Pantheon in regione nona e iuxta templum Agrippae" (at the Pantheon in the ninth region and next to the temple of Agrippa").

The church was restored (including the addition of a new campanile). at the end of the 12th century during the pontificate of Pope Celestine III (1191–1198), who also deposited the relics of the martyr in the church. In the 16th century, it was a favoured praying-place for St Philip Neri. In the 17th and 18th centuries it was almost completely rebuilt (with only the campanile remaining from the old structure) by several architects : Cesare Corvara and Giovanni Battista Contini (1641–1723), who added chapels and the portico, Antonio Canevari (1681–1750), Nicola Salvi (1697–1751) and finally, from 1728, Giovanni Domenico Navone. The new high altar, in bronze and polychrome marble, was added by Nicola Salvi in 1739 and in 1749 Ferdinando Fuga put a baldachin over it. The choir and the sacristy were realized by Giovanni Moscati (but designed by Canevari). The church was designed in Roman Baroque style." (Text from Wikipedia).
