  • beautiful, very old church incorporating many more ancient elements. It was restored a few decades ago after being badly damaged by a mafia bombing
  • We stumbled upon this church by chance when we were just exploring the area the first day we spend in Rome. The inside of the church looks simpler than the more popular tourist sites, but you can just see the authenticity of the architecture and and Roman basilica style. In some ways it was actually more interesting
  • Definitely worth a visit
  • Possibly the loveliest church in Rome (and I've seen them all). Not hit by Baroque restructuring, it has retained its original athmosphere. The mixed set of re-used classical columns, the portico in front, re-used roman sculpture in the walls and the attached equally antique arco degli argentari make this a must-see. In a very lovely and quiet street, behind the Arco di Giano. Much to be prefered to the nearby worn-out boca della verita'.
  • A little-known Church but worth seeing. Very simple but very impressive. One of the most beautiful in Rome. Sin is little known or maybe it's just as well there's people you mouthy.
