The Chiesa della Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini is a church in the historic city centre of Rome. In the Regola rione, it neighbours other important historic buildings such as the Palazzo Farnese, Palazzo Spada, Ponte Sisto and the Via Giulia.HistoryUrged by Filippo Neri, by 1540 lay members of his order gathered at the church of San Girolamo della Carità. Neri soon had Pope Paul III recognize the group it as the Confraternita della Santissima Trinita de' Pellegrini e de' Convalescenti (Fraternity of the Holy Trinity of Pilgrims and Convalescent). For the Jubilee of 1550, the group took on the burden of hosting pilgrims, with particular regard for those who came from distant lands. After Holy Year, the association cared for the convalescent poor, discharged from city hospitals. In 1558, Pope Paul IV assigned them the perpetual use of the church of San Benedetto in Arenula, which was in very bad condition. The next year, the fraternity bought a house near the church to be used as a hospital-hospice. For the Jubilee of 1575, the fraternity hosted more than 180,000 pilgrims.The fraternity ultimately tore down the decrepit church, and decided to build a new. The first stone was laid on February 26, 1587, and consecration took place on June 12, 1616 and titled Santissima Trinità e San Benedetto. In subsequent centuries the parish and adjacent buildings continued to serve as a hospice for pilgrims, or as a hospital.

  • Small church located very close to the Spada Gallery. Austere décor and poor lighting. Free access.

  • Great Latin Mass, beautiful church, incredibly nice community. I went to mass here regularly while I was studying in Rome and went back every week. They offer confessions during Sunday masses too.
  • Mass is celebrated: Weekdays 7:15 (not July and August) and 18:30; Sundays 9:00, 11:00 (solemn high Mass, except July and August) and 18:30. This is Rome's parish church of the Extraordinary Form (Tridentine Rite).
  • Nice church for latin mass.
  • Beautiful Church. Early morning Mass @ 7:15 what better way to start the day?
  • This church is really beautiful, like a jewel hidden in a small square. Here you can admire beautiful paintings.
