“During your walks to explore the capital I suggest you to take a short coffe break at the famous Sant'Eustachio Caffè, in the square Sant'Eustachio 82. If you raise your eyes when you pass by the church of St.Eustace, a hundred meters from the Pantheon and a few steps from Piazza Navona, you will notice the unmistakable shape of a stag's head sculpted in marble at the top of the facade. This unusual church decoration is an allusion to the life of St.Eustace who lived in Rome at the time of Emperor Trajan and was a pagan army general, before converting to Catholicism. The legend says that during a hunting party, he saw a luminous cross surmounted by the figure of Christ in between the antlers of the stag he was pursuing.”
