  • Compare from the Basilica di San Pietro in the Vatican close to. Prestigious and beautiful church. Loved by local residents, were festooned finery is not like the.

  • North of the Gianicolo, in largo degli Alicorni, opposite al colonnato di San Pietro, the Church of Santi Michele e Magno. This place of worship and outbuildings, inherent in the Borgo district of Rome, have extraterritorial zone of the Holy See. But in fact, it can safely access, climbing a steep staircase inside a building, in the past considered holy, and opened in 1600. At the apex of the marble steps, worn out and shabby, you are immediately in front of a beautiful wooden crucifix on the wall, and you can gather in prayer a few moments, then continue to the right towards the entrance of the Church. Or, from the outside, on the road, through a gate, along a short yard, you enter through a brick arch surmounted by a newsstand mariana, with the forepart crowned by a triangular pediment. To the right of the façade, there is a 12th-century Romanesque Bell Tower, which is only visible from St. Peter's square. The Interior of the Church of the Frisians Dutch has three naves, divided by ancient columns packed into pillars of the 18th century, which houses two medieval tombstones. The first reports that the altar was consecrated by Pope Innocent II on 30 January 1141, Anno Domini. The second tells the miraculous discovery of the relics of san Magno in the small town of funds and their translation in Rome. The altar is carved from a Roman sarcophagus, which bears an inscription: that is the stone where the Virgin Mary presented her son to the temple. From an internal staircase you can access the top compartment, above the altar, where the old pipe organ, and from where you have an overall view of the Church. Beautiful.

  • like a David and Goliath this cosy little church sits on the edge of the mighty arms of Bernini's Vatican square. In every view from St Peter's onto the Tiber and Castel St Angelo it can be seen but only when zooming in seriously into the tip of the square's right arm. Then when found and visited it is jaw droppingly beautiful. Small but intimately providing feeling of Sanctified shelter to the soul, never pushy like it's big neighbor. Every Dutch has to visit as it is 'the Church of the Frisians' (founded as a schola providing refuge to pilgrims from the Frisian lands, then stretching from what is now Danmark all the way to the French coast, for Rome outside the walls was very dangerous in those times ) Yes it is much okder than it's huge brother across the street ;-) Dutch is spoken (as well as English and of course Italian) and when there's Mass one should. ot be surprised to be asked to join and participate :-) for they have only small staff. Visit this little gem and you will always carry it on on your heart.
  • As with everything in the Vatican its just amazing to see.
  • Great place
  • One of the churches more small and beautiful in Rome, a little overdone but fascinating travelogue, has a staircase that is holy, though not the truth that is located at the Lateran.

  • The National Church of Netherlands with a long history. After mass we sing the sixth verse of the national anthem and possibly the Frisian anthem!
