Overview

This street is one of the oldest roads in Rome; it gets its name from the trade in salt that took place with the Sabina. Over the centuries, the road was divided into the Salaria Vecchia (Old Salaria) that has, over time, lost its importance, and the Salaria Nuova (New Salaria), the current road. Traces of ancient buildings can be seen amongst the modern buildings on each side. There are also medieval remains such as the catacombs of Bassilla, an underground basilica, and the catacombs of San Panfilo, Priscilla and Santa Felicita. The Giordani cemetery is also found on this street.
