Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Maria al Foro Traiano, Rome

#150 of 526 in Historic Sites in Rome
The Church of the Most Holy Name of Mary at the Trajan Forum is a Roman Catholic church in Rome, Italy. This church should not be confused with the church Santissimo Nome di Maria in Via Latina in south-east Rome. The pale marble church stands in front of the Column of Trajan, a few dozen steps from the similarly domed, but externally more colorful, church of Santa Maria di Loreto.The feast of the Holy Name of Mary was instituted by Pope Innocent XI after the victory of the Austrian-Polish armies under the command of John III Sobieski over the Turks at the Battle of Vienna in 1683. Abbot Giuseppe Bianchi instituted devotion to the most holy name of Mary in 1685 at Santo Stefano del Cacco, and soon afterwards established the Congregation of the Most Holy Name of Mary, which was formally approved in 1688.

  • From the top of the Vitorio Emanuele II Memorial, the view was beautiful with two cupolas from the Church of The Church of St. Santisimo Noome di Maria Al Foro Triano and the Church of Our Lady of Our Lady next door.

  • Chiesa del Santissimo Nome di Maria al Foro Traiano is a small catholic church near to Trajan column. It is of Barogue-style and nice both inside and outside.  more »
  • Finally found open this that turned out to be a jewel placed there between the Trajan Column and the access to wide magnanapolis! Finally, and the wait did not disappoint in a very small and decorated church, baroque eighteenth century with bright lines, frescoed on several parts and well preserved. Nothing essential, but it is worth a little bit stopping at the hole, if only for the glance of the bright chapels decorated on an elliptical body (if the door is open...)

  • Small Catholic church right in front of Trajian column. The architecture is very similar to the other church, just 50 meters from it, santa Maria dj Loreno. Botb domes are similar and beautiful. Worth visiting them and if you are lucky they might be open .
  • Right behind Trajan's column, it has a nice cupola
  • I often come here to pray.
  • A smaller church in Rome but no less beautiful
  • Really a treat to visit. Wasn't open 10 yrs ago, so it's nice seeing it this trip
