  • the bell tower, the smallest in Rome that preserves even the smallest bell in the city. The interior retains a fine cosmatesco floor in porfido and the altar embellished with a beautiful slab in porfido type cosmatesco.

  • When you walk through the Palatine Bridge on the Tiber River, you can go straight to the Piazza di Castellani and go down Lunga Lina Street to the square. The Church of San Benedetto in Pisinula faces the square and shows the façade. The church is parked in front of the car to block, and it is not clear whether it is a visitor or a believer shining brightly, but there is no sign that the group is still in motion. The door of the church was closed and there was only a view. The wall of the façade is marked with a "Festa di S.Rita 21-22 Maggio" curtain. But since we visited on the 24th, the festival is supposed to be finished. The small church is built from the eleventh century to the twelfth century, but it doesn't feel old. The bell tower built around the same time is said to be the smallest in Rome or visible between the roofs. I could see it from a place a little further away.

  • With my husband I'm intentionally going to see this treasure again. Unfortunately, it has drowned between the horrible palaces of the fifties and the beautiful facade is not photographable without making professional tweaks. This time I give you little news, because in this church, which is located in Trastevere, you really have to go there: a treasure not to be missed. From the name (discover the origin) to the bell tower and especially to the magnificent cosmatesco floor that seems to be the oldest in the world ever reworked: magnificent

  • Beautifullittle Romanesque church.
  • This ancient Church is a "must-see". It's tiny and a little challenging to find, but it is well worth it. Tucked away in The awesome Roman neighborhood of Pincinula, where there are no tourist crowds. Perfect for anyone who loves antiquities. Perfect for those who love the beautiful history of the church. Perfect for those who love cafés and cobblestone streets.
  • Hopefully this review is not meant to bring more tourist and ruin this magical place...
  • The church is open 8:00 to 12:00, 16:30 to 19:30 daily. Mass is celebrated here daily at 9:00 and 18:30. Confessions are heard for half an hour before the morning Mass, and there is Adoration for an hour after the evening one (which presumably involves a lock-in). A fascinating and prayerful little old church, with an unrestored Cosmatesque floor (rare in Rome). It approached dereliction when in the charge of Carmelite nuns who became senile and incapable, but a Brazilian congregation called the Heralds of the Gospel have undertaken a very impressive restoration. Well done -especially in recovering the icon of St Benedict after it was stolen from the sisters.
