View of the Church of San Nicola that is located on the via Appia.  It is opposite to the Tomb of Cecilia Metella on the via Appia.  The church was built in the 14th century.

It is officially called "San Nicola a Capo di Bove."  "Capo di Bove" means "ox–head."  This is a reference to the decorative elements on the Tomb of Cecilia Metella opposite it.

The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas of Myra.
