  • My friend and myself, on a sunny Saturday, we will have a five-hour walk from the Colosseum. We walk the via dei Fori imperiali and, at the foot of the Capitoline Hill, there is the Baroque church of Santi Luca e Martina in one of the most beautiful scenery of ancient Rome. A complex story to which I refer to the many documents available. The makeover is a project by Pietro da Cortona and starts in 1635, after the finding of the relics of Saint Martina.   The façade is imposing vertical development. The plant is a Greek cross and the circular dome. The upper Church, St. Luke's, is open for worship, belongs to the Accademia di San Luca. The high altar was designed by Pietro da Cortona.  Under the table the statue of Santa Martina beheaded by Niccolò Mahmood reminiscent of Santa Cecilia di Maderno. The lower church is dedicated to Saint Martina. It is a valuable Baroque funeral monument dedicated to the Saint. We were lucky enough to meet a researcher who gave crucial information. Dear reader that beauty cannot be described, you really need to go there.  After this unexpected visit we continue our walk in beauty.

  • The Temple stands almost on the Forum. On this many elements made of razobranyh pagan temples. Beautiful inside, but it seemed to me that it's worth visiting time Was snuffed out + Forum + Capitol with temples of the city. It is difficult to switch the brain at different aesthetics.

  • All the Romans and tourists visiting the forums know it and have it immortalized in their photos, but few have visited the site. The Church, with its dome, is clearly visible within the archaeological area, opposite the Mamertine prison and next to the Arch of Septimius Severus, but is open only on Saturdays for the entire day, after years of restoration have finally allowed the complete fruition. Built by Pietro da Cortona for the glorious Accademia di San Luca, is composed of an upper Church, of perfect Baroque lines, clean and no frills, and a crypt which collects the body of Saint martyr Martina, more intimate but the same size as the overlying atmosphere. The building is pure architecture, elegant, with a few embellishments that serve in particular to mark spaces, like the interesting floor, and some ape as a souvenir of clients. The visit was a pleasant surprise.

  • Great views of this church from the Roman Forum.
  • Gives a beautiful look to the surroundings around it. Loved it for its simplicity inside
  • Glad I got this as part of the omnia pass as I wouldn't pay to see this....did I miss something? 3 rooms of audio visual and the chapel.
  • A delight to wander the streets of Rome. So much history, so much power and suffering.

  • Shameful the way the Popes have defaced the Roman monuments using them as marble and travertine quarries to fill this wonderful city of churches, chapels, etc
