  • It is located on the Aventino hill, between Santa Sabina and Sant'Anselmo, and is characterized by various architectural elements dating back to different eras: the bell tower is Romanesque, the sixteenth-century facade and the medieval porch. The church has its own charm and is also worth a visit to the adjacent garden.

  • In the Aventino area... The interior is very simple and it is precisely in simplicity the beauty of this basilica. The portic, the delightful little fountain, the view of the Roman countryside, are the strong points of the church.

  • On the eve of Aventino, we visited the Basilica. It is accessed through a beautiful medieval porch, which has on the right a fountain adorned with a crush with images of saints Bonifacio and Alexios. The facade of the church is clearly ancient: on the right stands the beautiful Romanesque bell tower and under the porch is the statue of Pope Benedict XIII. But it is within the walls that the precious content is evident in its completeness. The coffered ceiling, the trampling of the floor, the right aisle where Princess Borghese rests, the chapel in which the icon of Our Lady is kept brought by Alessio himself returning from the East. And again the main altar, with the urn containing the relics of the saints and... much, much more. Yes, we like this place, it soches history!

  • This place itself is closed to the public; however, there's a line that forms right at a closed door. The idea is to see through the lock, it is totally worth it. Plus it's a nice walk from surrounding touristic areas, it is a nice getaway from crowded places and there's a peaceful Giardino degli Aranci
  • Very quiet church very important for Czech church - St. Adalbert (Vojtech) entered here to benedictine Order.
  • Interesting and original sculpture seen nowhere else on Catholic churches.
  • Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Artistry is amazing.
  • Wonderful little church on the Aventin.
