  • I had the chance to turn it over, below, of course it's great and can in some ways become dispersed, but if you're watching all its beauties, you'll be ecstatic.

  • Beautiful and imposing, this basilica is impossible not to notice it, a 'cuppolone' less important than others, but wonderful, both inside and outside, also there is a very lively oratory, games for children given for free, football field, basketball and volleyball.

  • Am I the only person think this building which is kind of looks like the White House?
  • In continuous improvement. Great efforts of the director of the Oratory but there is a need for more collaboration from the Catholic "frequenters" or not. Especially because sometimes they enter "bulread" that they should not. However Fantastic Place x the kids, to make them play. Play Area. Covered Area. Basketball. Soccer Fields and many free sports courses. Good!

  • Basilica built in the years 50. Currently There is work being cleaned of the inner dome. Jobs that are slow for lack of funds. The Salesians who run the parish are exceptional.

  • Large basilica, very spacious. Safety work is currently under way, so part of the space is occupied by scaffolding and transennials. At certain times of the year, organ music concerts are held, which are very interesting for fans. There is a large adjoining area dedicated to sports and outdoor activities. At one end of the block there is a small theatre cinema, both recent and art films, and sometimes plays. There are guided trips and excursions of religious and cultural interest.

  • One of the most beautiful basilicas in Rome. I saw it built and inaugurated by Pope John XXIII more than 60 years ago. The arcades and all the architectural contour inspired by the structure of the basilica are also beautiful.
